If you have someone at home with a love for balloons, you definitely should not miss this. We’ve come to this balloon extravaganza every year since we got to know about this wonderful event that Marina Square organises every year. And it’s free!
This year’s balloon extravaganza is in its 5th year running and centres around the prehistoric age when Dinosaurs ruled. A definite hot favourite for the boys!
There are 10 awesome dinosaur balloon sculptures including a gigantic T-Rex! With over 90,300 balloons, the team of 55 balloon sculptors worked over a total of 4 days to complete the dramatic display at the atrium.
And yes! It’s another one for the Singapore’s Book of Records for the largest balloon landscape and the largest mobile balloon costume!
You can imagine the Wow! on Wey’s face when we arrived this morning to see the completed works of balloon art at Marina Square. We were in total awe when we came to the Atrium!
I can only let the photos speak for the awesomeness 🙂
Imagine, being greeted at by the jaws of a T-Rex! Roar!! haha… we loved this display and it was easily the most popular one with the kids. It got them really excited posing for photos and counting the sharp teeth! Wey roared to his heart’s content! LOL!
I loved this stray big-claw of a T-Rex which has a nice wrap around for kids to pose behind of… Super Cool!
How can you not smile when you are surrounded with balloons, balloons and more balloons… Look at the joy written all over the little one’s face!
Usually reluctant and impatient when Mummy wants a photo, Wey turned on a smile at each photo spot!
And a Super gigantic T-Rex towering above all else…
Even I joined in the fun and posed for a picture or two… this one taken by Wey! Not bad since he seldom gets a chance to touch my phone, let alone take photos with it hehe…
More prehistoric balloon sculptures … Loved the cute little Pterodactyl!
And can you recognise this plant? haha it shares the same name as me in The Little Shop of Horrors! hehee…
One more shot of the gigantic T-Rex before we headed off!
And so it’s till we meet again next year 🙂 The Dinosaur Balloon Extravaganza at Marina Square is on display from 20 – 22 March 2015, so don’t miss it. We’re sure glad we made it!
At the end of the event on 22 March, the organisers will be attempting yet another book of records… to pop the most number of balloons in 10 seconds!! We wish them luck!
