One of my favorite places to have a playdate is the Discovery Cube because of all the fun learning activities on site along with the various special events they host. This month Discovery Cube invites Southern California families and all budding bubbleologists to spend spring break at the 21st annual Bubblefest, a festival featuring bubble scientist and performance artist Deni Yang. This hands-on exhibit is actually one of my favorites and we were blessed make this one of our playdates with Joy.
When her brothers were little we brought them to Discovery Cube Oc BubbleFeast. The exhibit was awesome back then and has grown to have a fun hands-on exhibit. As well as a must-see 45-minute Mega Bubblefest Laser Show production at the 10,000 square-foot Julianne Argyros Showcase Theater. Famed bubble scientist and performance artist Yang leads the viscous variety stage show, which combines music, lasers, lighting effects and bubble artistry to create a spectacular experience for all ages.
Yang – a second-generation bubbleologist following in the footsteps of parents Fan and Ana, who are Guinness Book of World Record holders and inventors of the Gazillion Bubbles Show – has wowed audiences around the world with his hypnotic stage performances. Bubblefest goers will see him blow bubbles of all shapes, sizes and colors – some filled with swirling smoke and others seemingly dancing and rotating in mesmerizing displays of visual artistry. He also will invite a few lucky youngsters on the stage during each performance to participate in various bubble tricks.
Before the show had a blast in the bubble zone where guests of all ages can participate in bubble-focused educational experiments, including interactive activities for early learners who are 5 years old and younger.
