Elmo, Barney, even Little Robots, both Ash and Ayd had lapped it all up! But family-friendly activities at Marina Square need not be confined to the festive holidays. Marina Square has been holding an epic balloon exhibition for the past 5 years and after last year's Dinosaur-themed one, the 6th edition begins TODAY (18 March 2016)!
This year, step into a colourful world of balloons and roam around fairytale cottages, flowers and butterflies, creatively sculpted using around 92,000 balloons.
Titled 'A Fairytale Garden Balloon Exhibition', a team of 50 balloon artists including champions of the World Balloon Convention, winners of Taiwan International Balloon Art Championships and overseas record-breakers from 9 countries have transformed the Marina Square atrium into a fairytale garden!
Kids will be greeted by fairies, rabbits, grasshoppers and other animals!
They will even have the chance to walk through a 6-metre tall gigantic mushroom made from balloons! Just try not to poke them, okay? Heh.
Besides marvelling at the balloon creations, there will be a host of other activities to thrill and entertain families and kids as well... with the most appealing to kids being this, I reckon.
