You could just tell everyone that the water is temporarily cut off and leave a sign in the bathrooms or something like that!
There's many effective ways to fix this: 1. Find a new place to host the party and tell everyone to go there instead. 2. Uninvited everyone, explaining that your water is cut off due to a burst pipe or something else less embarrassing... 3. Tell everyone that they're still invited but let them know that the water is cut off with the same excuse as 2. Come on OP, could have been worse.
Don't disinvite them. Just simply put a "Sorry for the inconvenience" sign on your bathroom doors.
But realistically they need to offer another option. Whether they go and buy 15-20 gallon jugs so they can fill the toilets manually after each flush or get a porta-potty or something. Can't expect people to come over for a party and tell them they can't use a bathroom while they're there.
Do you have a friend or family member that might let you have the party at their house? If you assure them you'll clean up afterwards they might let you. It seems unfair for your parents to not pay the water bill, assuming they knew about your party but I don't know anything about your family's financial situation so all I can say is sorry about your dilemma!
