Balloons

Today’s prompt is balloons.  This giant snowman is made of over 6,000 balloons intertwined in a basketweave-type pattern.  It stands four stories tall, took almost a week to construct, and is on display at one of our local shopping malls.  The latex balloon smell certainly permeates the air, and there are even signs on the doors warning those with latex allergies to stay away and use a different entrance.

In case you are interested, you can help “melt” the snowman at an official popping party this weekend.  Be sure to wear your earplugs!
