Well, after months of planning, here it is. Plans are printed. The balloons are sorted. Rigging is in place. We start building this Saturday. Most of the crew will meet at 10am in the Sibley lobby to get their briefing. Then the adventure begins. We hope many of you will stop by during the build, and again when it’s all complete.
Don’t forget, we have a packed schedule of performances happening around the sculpture Feb 5-9, thanks to Young Audiences of Rochester. A bunch of great teaching artists from the YAR roster are joining us to share their talents. The full schedule of events and all the latest news about the Beanstalk will appear on BalloonManor.com. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and the Airigami blog to see build photos and any other news we have to share throughout the week. We’ll be using the #BalloonManor hashtag. Please help share the information and direct as many people as you can to Balloon Manor. You don’t have to be in Rochester to share. We have artists from around the world taking part in this build, and we want the world to see it. And if you are coming, let us know by visiting the event page we have on Facebook and click that you’re attending.
Thanks for all of your support, in making this an amazing event. It may be a cold winter, but that doesn’t mean a beanstalk can’t grow in Rochester.
