The Big Crazy Specius Balloonus Animalus Long Island City Parade Battle Royale Float Happeninging Thinging Thingy with Balloons
4K+ biodegradable latex balloons all for you.
And then destroy (Saturday Night for a poppin time till the poppin is over)
Come show us your balloon pride. And then show the world your balloon pride.
Why not make the largest balloon animal in the world and why not two or three and take them into the streets and battle the heck out of each other. There will be balloons. But let’s not be ashamed of our balloon enthusiasm. Let’s make it public. Let’s Parade them and be merry once again.
We shouldn’t hurt animals. But we can hurt balloon animals. At the end of the night we will destroy the thing we once built and loved. But let’s begin with the loving. With latex, of course.
