After 10 years of entertaining children and families with sudsy fun, the Duluth Children’s Museum Bubble Festival has become an annual way to end summer with a pop. This year’s Bubble Festival takes place on Sunday, August 19 from noon to 4 p.m. at 29th Ave. W. and Michigan St.
For the past two years, the festival has drawn over 4000 people and the Duluth Children’s Museum expects to surpass that number this year. The festival is packed with bubble-themed activities, including a bubble so big children can stand in it, bubble play pools and activities, science demonstrations, and much more. Through partnership with the Essentia Duluth Sports Heritage Center, free skating and games on the turf will be available.
Headlining the 10th anniversary of the festival is Minneapolis-based dance pop duo Koo Koo Kangaroo, along with the return of singer songwriter Mary Bue and Bubble Parties by Diamond M.C. Entertainment. Food vendors will be on site selling snacks to fuel families through all the dancing fun.
Numerous community partners have stepped up to lead activities, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Duluth, Frost River, Lake Superior Zoo, Great Lakes Aquarium and many more. Medical support will be provided by the Arrowhead Parish Nurses Association.
“It is amazing to see how much Bubble Festival has grown in 10 years” said Cameron Kruger, President/CEO of the Duluth Children’s Museum. “We want to continue to draw attention to the important work we do the museum every day, while getting families out to Lincoln Park for a fun filled day.”
A suggested donation of $1 per person is asked to help keep the festival running each year. Admission to the museum will be just $5 during Bubble Festival.
The Bubble Festival is presented by DSGW Architects.
