I’ve been updating the Events Calendar quite a bit in the past few days and there’s some interesting stuff coming up, including various balloon events.
Tomorrow, the Unexpected Art Balloon installation is going up. The idea seems to be 5000 balloons with messages of kindness being set up at certain locations in the city. And don’t worry, they’ll be taking the balloons down again and won’t be using helium, in order to avoid risk to animals and the environment. They’re looking for volunteers, and I’m tempted to try to make some time to go, even if just for an hour tomorrow afternoon.
The following weekend, as part of the Midzomergracht Festival, there will be an attempt to set a Guinness World Record over at Neude. The plan is to see how many balloons can be blown up in one minute.
Finally, if roller derby is more your thing, the Dom City Dolls, Utrecht’s own roller derby team, is hosting a competition on Saturday afternoon.
Don’t forget, if you know of any other events coming up here in Utrecht, feel free to pass them along to me.
