This Saturday, June 14th, as part of Luminat’eau, join those crazy kids and Newmindspace for their annual bubble battle. The event is loosely based on the Dr. Seuss classic The Butter Battle Book, where each warring faction (butter side up and butter side down) brings larger and crazier contraptions to the wall that divides their nations until their mutual destruction is assured.
Bring your nuttiest bubble guns, bubble generators, massive wands, bubble solution, and plenty of rechargeable AA batteries to the Ann Tindal lawn at 5 p.m. and blow! This event is appropriate for all ages and is, of course, totally free. Newmindspace encourages participants to grab their bubble toys from independent retailers like The Toy Space at King Street West & Bathurst Street, but the Toys ‘R Us in the Dufferin Mall seems to have the largest selection and stock of toys.
Get ready for millions of bubbles to fill the air, and add the Facebook listing to your events.
After the bubble battle, there is a free, all ages afterparty beneath a massive tent at Harbourfront Centre featuring DJ’s JELO, spinning his own brand of speaker-humping music, JustinTyce spinning electro, and TouchBoy spinning chiptunes and 8-bit music off a Game Boy. The party starts at 10 p.m. and goes until 2 a.m., so make sure to arrive early, and check out the POP! Facebook event.
Kevin Bracken is a co-founder of Newmindspace.
