Join us as we host the Charlotte edition of the Global Bubble Parade 2017 on Sunday, May 28th on the Rail Trail. Together with The Soap Bubble Circus we are joining more than 100 host cities across more than 50 countries to participate in the “world’s biggest celebration of happiness!”
This BYOB (bring your own bubbles) event is great for kids and adults of all ages. We will meet at 1:00pm at Edna’s Porch (the big yellow swings) on the Charlotte Rail Trail, located beside the Carson St. Station on the Lynx Light Rail. In our “flash mob” style parade, we will walk along the Rail Trail from Edna’s Porch, down to the East/West Blvd. station where we will cross the tracks, and then walk back to Carson St. Station all while blowing bubbles and having fun.
The 1.4 mile round trip loop will also take us by some cool public art, as well as a few yummy eating establishments if you need to refuel. We will have Bubble World and Burst bubbles to hand out (on a first-come, first-served basis), but please come prepared with your favorite bubbles and bubble machines!
Let’s fill the Rail Trail with bubbles and joy and show the world that Charlotte is where it’s at! Find and share the event on Facebook here.
