Gemar at the Big Balloon Build

Building Magic, Spreading Joy with Gemar Balloons

Balloon Art by Merry Makers was teaming up with Life Stories Child and Family Advocacy to bring a huge event, called the Big Balloon Build, to Greeley this summer!

The Big Balloon Build, which kicked off on July 20 – 23 at Aims Community College’s Welcome Center with a ribbon cutting, brought more than 75 balloon artists from around the world to Greeley to spend more than 3,000 hours turning and twisting 125,000 Gemar balloons of all colors, shapes and sizes into literal works of art.

The combination of the artists’ hard work and talent resulted in an amazing out-of-this-world display of space ships, aliens, dinosaurs and more. Anyone attending the event was an adventurer on a journey through magical strange worlds.

The Big Balloon Build concept was created by Stuart Davies who lives in Wales and travels around the globe helping organizers with their builds.

“This is the best build we’ve ever done; it’s absolutely amazing,” Davies said about the Greeley event. “The theme is so wild and wacky and colorful.”

Congratulations on the outstanding team behind this once-in-a-lifetime immersive Balloon Wonderland all in aid of a local charity Life Stories Child. A big thank you to the Big Balloon Build, Balloon Art by Merry Makers, PremiumConwin, Life Stories Child & Family Advocacy for a hugely successful fundraiser!
