Today (August 4) is the 60th birthday of former President Barack Obama and, like most people who celebrate milestone birthdays, whether or not they have reigned as President of the United States. , a huge party would be in the works to celebrate.
According to Page Six, just under 700 people are expected to attend the former president’s birthday party this weekend at his nearly $ 12 million home on Martha’s Vineyard, with nearly 500 guests and 200 workers in attendance. for the festivities.
Of the 500 guests, it is rumored that celebrities like John Legend, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, The Roots, Steven Spielberg and many other big names will be taking the ferry or plane to the vineyard for the 60th trip of the President Obama around the sun. .
On the one hand, having stars as massive as Michael Jordan and the like in New England sounds, well, super cool. At the same time, rumor has it that the whole party is being verbally beaten by the residents of the vineyard, due to the Delta variant of COVID being unleashed and the fact, whether we like it or not, we are still in a pandemic.
According to the New York Post, everyone at the party, whether guest or staff, will need to be vaccinated and the party will take place outside. But residents are still not convinced it’s a great idea, especially since in November a huge wedding took place on the vineyard which was ultimately classified as a super-spreading event.
Regardless, the party still seems to be happening this weekend and there’s a chance you’ll spot a decent amount of celebrity sightings in New England over the next few days.
