Discovery Science Center: Bubblefest XVII

Disclosure: I received complimentary admission to the event. No further compensation was received. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The annual bubble spectacular event - Bubblefest - is back for spring break
This is the seventeenth year this amazing show has made an
appearance in Orange County at the Discovery Science Center,
and let me tell you, it doesn't disappoint.

This outdoor festival includes an inflatable play area, water spheres, and
interactive bubble-based science zones for families to explore
and learn together.

I love the hands-on learning that takes place at an exhibit like this.
For instance, in the picture below, as JT explored with this bubble wall,
he figured out that if he covered his hand in bubbles he was able to pass
his hand through without popping the bubble.
It was so cool to see him come to this conclusion through a
truly hands-on experience.

JT loved the water sphere and his chance at being a human bubble.
He's always wanted to try it out, so we were super excited that 
it was included with admission to Bubblefest.

Isabella was a huge fan of making the giant bubbles .
She was pretty good at making the really long ones.
I loved the look of wonder and excitement on her face as she created each one.

The pièce de résistance of Bubblefest is definitely the Mega Bubblefest Laser Show.
Seriously spectacular.
It features international bubble scientist Deni Yang.
The show uses high-tech lights and lasers and of course -
lots and lots of BUBBLES!
Smoking bubbles, spinning bubbles, bouncing bubbles, 
bubbles within bubbles, square bubbles - this show has it all!
It's amazing.

Bubblefest is only here for one more week,
and then you'll have to wait until next year to experience
this amazing bubble soiree.
