Do we ever outgrow the joy of bubbles? The LA-based BUBBLEWORKS company is betting the answer to that question is no. They create “bubble experiences” that fill city blocks, festival grounds, stadiums, retail centers, brand events and more with countless evanescent spheres. “With social media as a driving force at live events, BUBBLEWORKS transforms spaces and surrounds your guests with a shareable bubble experience,” says BUBBLEWORKS founder Adam Williams. “Our large-scale bubble effects surprise and engage people, creating awesome Instagram-worthy moments.” The installations have been to Coachella, Pacific Place in Seattle, and Insomniac electronic music events, and they’re available to blow guests away at your next big event. bubbleworks.com
