On Friday, May 31, there were clear skies in Wilton, unless you happened to be at Trackside.

Thick clouds were hanging low over the teen center as the sun set — and it made for a great party. These weren’t ordinary clouds, however. They were created by throwing mixtures of non-toxic paint powder and cornstarch into the air, where it stuck to the white T-shirts of middle schoolers running through them.

Then, with their clothes tie-dyed from the paint clouds, they headed inside where the paint glowed under an array of black lights. Dance music was blasting courtesy of a live DJ while glow sticks were thrown into the crowd for even more neon color. Even some oldies were played when one middle schooler requested “Take on Me” by A-Ha.

After hours of dancing, everyone went home covered in paint powder for a much needed shower.
