BUBBLE SHOW We invite this expert bubble-smith back each year because he elicits the best crowd experience we have ever seen…not your regular ooohs and awwwws but more like that x 50! Come to see small car sized bubbles float through the air, huge clouds of bubble foam or stand still and he will put you in a bubble. Not your run of the mill show for sure.
