    I was thinking of it like "parade mode" where you go 5mph in party mode while puling a float or something.

    People drive in party mode all the time. That’s why DUI’s are so common.

    I must have missed something. What is Party Mode?

    Sorry, I guess it's actually called holiday mode. The one where the doors dance and music plays.

    The Holiday Show will only work when the car is in park.

    I've never actually been inside the car and tried the holiday mode, only outside of it. I always assumed it's uninterruptible and the car is essentially yard-art through the duration of the show. Now I'm curious though...

    I don’t believe holiday mode will start if anyone is inside the car. It is pretty loud.

    Thought it would be useful as it leaves the 12v plugs and USBs on. Turns out Sentry Mode does as well which is how I kept my 12v fridge working on my recent 8K roadtrip.

    Elon Musk described the feature in a tweet:

    I recall hearing about that. Those modes have not yet been added to the vehicle. The closest options are "Keep Climate On" and "Dog Mode" but they don't fully encompass the true "Party" features speculated based on the tweet.

    I'm confused by your comment because most people have Sentry Mode available to them (I have a HW 2.0 X). The USBs and 12v plugs turn on when you have Sentry Mode=ON. Easy to verify by plugging your phone into the 2nd row, as an example, while sitting in the back seat and use your phone to toggle Sentry Mode ON and OFF. Again, I used Sentry Mode recently on a 8K roadtrip to keep my 12v fridge on at night while not in the X.

    I apologize, I was only referring to modes that would be similar to the "party mode" described in the tweet. While Sentry Mode is available, and may accomplish keeping the ports in the car powered, I wouldn't presonally place it in the same classification as the other "modes" myself.
