We usually don’t drive the whole way to Columbia MO in one day anymore, so make a regular stop in Ferdinand, Indiana.
This year, at our favorite pub in “downtown” Ferdinand, we saw signs announcing HeimaFest that day, in a park a few blocks away.
Say what? Apparently, it’s a “home” festival in this German Catholic mid-western town.
It was a low-key Floyd kind of thing, with lots of kids, with free admission. We did not stay for the cornhole contest or the beer keg toss.
But this engagement pictured below, by even the kids typically a little too old to be cool blowing bubbles, shows them very much into SuperBubbles.
I don’t know any of the details other than what you can see here–five gallon buckets of thick “bubble-stuff” (maybe a bulk-volume dishwashing soap?) and dowels with a loop of light-weight chain. Dip the loop into the bucket, and swirl!
I thought this might be something that would work at Lineberry Park or the Harvest Festival later in the summer here. So share this with those who might be looking for a kid’s activity. Maybe this already happens, but I never saw it before. Did you?
