When it comes to having fun, let’s not forget about the kids. Each year the Buffalo Museum of Science throws an all out bubble bash that amazes the young ones, and delights their parents. That’s because bubbles bring out the kid in all of us.
Bubblefest is a day-long celebration that is a lot more than just having fun. There are lessons to be learned and activities to participate in along the way. There’s even a Tekno Bubble Dance Room where visitors can dance, as thousands of illuminated bubbles fall to the ground.
Corning Museum of Glass will be on-hand to demonstrate the art of flameworking, and visitors can learn how these skilled artisans can manipulate glass into all sorts of objects.
If you’ve got kids, you don’t want to miss Bubblefest… it really is all that it’s made out to be. And you wouldn’t want to burst a little one’s bubble, would you?
