Our World - Balloon Wonderland at Marina Bay

Over 1,000 balloon sculpting enthusiasts and participants gathered at Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade on 26 Nov this year to enjoy an amazing treat of giant balloon sculptures in the form of sea creatures.

When we arrived, we were welcomed by this huge balloon 'kite' dancing in the air.

It was really great to see the community coming together to participate in this diverse and colourful event filled with lively entertainment.

Some of the sculptures are small and simple while others are huge and highly complex. Due to time constraints, I couldn't stay long enough to explore more fabulous creations so I only managed a few shots.

This variation of sea horse sculptures are a great pop of colour and grab attention of many children. I think they make a great floor standing centrepiece but I wonder how long such a sculpture can last, since they will somehow leak air and fall all the way to the floor!

Be careful as you pass by this eye-popping balloon sculpture! I've no idea what this is but the alien-like appearance looks like terrifying creatures from the ocean depths or monsters from outer space. They were a hit of the event though.

I was amazed by the wide assortment of colours, extraordinary shapes and sizes of balloons created by the People’s Association balloon sculpting interest groups! They really know how to twist up a storm.

  10. Beautiful pictures, my favorite is the first. I like the light and the delicacy with which they are captured, gorgeous. Greetings.

  11. I do agree with Andrea that your night shots are excellent as the views are awesome. The 'weird' balloon look like something between a lion dance head and a balinese mythical creature. Have a blessed Christmas!
