| by | News

The Red Dragon Centre has welcomed thousands of balloons as part of their most recent exciting installation, a Balloon Art Fiesta showcasing spectacular balloon sculptures.

The immersive experience is a visual installation provided by the award winning and internationally acclaimed Doctor Bob Balloons Unlimited.

The display is made up of over 16,000 Qualatex latex balloons, which decompose at the same rate as an oak leaf, and over 2000-man hours have been invested into the installation by Doctor Bob and his team as well as artists from far and wide.

Alongside the Centre’s great attractions and dining offers, to give visitors the perfect Bank Holiday weekend day out The Balloon Art Fiesta will be at the Centre from Friday 23 August to Monday 26 August and will be free to view daily until late.

The Balloon Art Fiesta is the centre’s most recent immersive experience and follows the theme to include wildlife sculptures and flower scenes. A free sculpture trail is also be available for children to take part in between 11am and 6pm. A form for this can be picked up from the Green Zone, where the centres very own life-sized green lion lives and visitors can relax on a 4-metre-long grass sofa, at the heart of the centre.

 

The Centre’s main piece is an enchanting willow tree scene made up of mocha brown, white, and rose-pink balloons. Visitors can also expect to see a variety of sculptures, including a giant colourful butterfly, towering sunflowers, and blossoming flowers as part of a 600-balloon garden scene as well as a magical toadstool scene.

Emma Constantinou, Marketing Manager of the Red Dragon Centre, said: “This summer we wanted to bring the great outdoors into our great indoors.

“The Balloon Art Fiesta is amazingly visual and a spectacular display of wildlife made of balloons, something many won’t have experienced before. We invite visitors to take a walk on the wild side and to definitely bring a camera as this is one to remember”

Doctor Bob from Doctor Bob Balloons Unlimited, who are installing the display, said: “We’re very excited to be a part of the Balloon Art Fiesta at The Red Dragon Centre this summer. Our aim is to always ensure we’re creating spectacular displays that our clients love and we have every confidence that visitors to The Red Dragon Centre this bank holiday weekend will be blown away by the display and sheer number of balloons included.”
