Bubblefest XVII Bursts Back onto the Scene this Spring at Discovery Science Center
Deni Yang headlines Bubblefest XVII March 28-April 14
SANTA ANA, Calif. – February 27, 2013 - BubbleFest XVII, Orange County’s premier bubble spectacular returns to the Taco Bell Discovery Science Center (DSC) March 28- April 14, 2013. The annual spring break festival features a combination of science and entertainment making Bubblefest good, clean fun for the entire family!
International bubble scientist, Deni Yang, will be headlining this year’s “Mega Bubblefest Laser Show.” The show uses high-tech lights, lasers and special effects to create a surreal bubble spectacle unlike anything visitors have ever experienced before. Somewhat of a family recipe, Yang will use his family’s top secret bubble solution to create a visually spectacular performance featuring a few lucky guests from the audience. Daily performances include creations such as a bubble carousel, bubbles within bubbles, smoking bubbles, spinning bubbles, bouncing bubbles and bubbles in all shapes and sizes. During Bubblefest XV, Yang achieved the Guinness World Record for the largest bubble measuring 170 feet and encapsulating 150 people.
“This entertaining event allows guests of all ages to experience the beauty of bubbles, while investigating the science behind the shape, longevity and colors,” said Janet Yamaguchi, Vice President of Education. “There’s a real innocence and youthfulness that comes with bubbles and this event truly brings out the kid in all of us!”
The outdoor festival will be filled with entertainment including an inflatable play zone, water spheres, and interactive science zones for kids and adults of all ages. Participants of this year’s Bubblefest will have the opportunity to step inside one of Yang’s record holding bubble creations with, “Me in a Bubble.”
The science zones will have learning stations intended to educate visitors on the scientific and mathematical principles of bubbles. Guests will learn about surface tension, elasticity, air pressure, geometry and molecular properties through various bubble experiments.
Also during this time period, Southern California residents will not want to miss the last month of Indiana Jones™ and the Adventure of Archaeology: The Exhibition which runs through April 21, 2013. This blockbuster exhibit follows the footsteps of Indiana Jones through the four famous films, while showcasing real historical artifacts that are thousands of years old!
And for the young builders at heart, Bob the Builder® – Project: Build It is currently on display through May 5, 2013. The 2,500 square foot multimedia exhibit invites exploration, inspires teamwork and a Can-do attitude, and brings eco-friendly building themes to life for children and families.
