If you only do one special outing this week with the family – go and see The Gazillion Bubble Show. I can not recommend it enough.

When I was four years old I’m pretty sure the only bubbles I made was from farting in the bath, unlike Melody Yang who started training at that age in the family business – bubble artistry. Fast forward twenty years and Melody has become a master of the art using used her father’s extraordinary bubble formulas to wow audiences all over the world, and this week she’s in Adelaide.

I sat with my six year old son next to a couple in their 60’s and a dad with his teenage son and saw families with members from 4 to 104* years of age (*so I might be exaggerating) experiencing the same wonder and amaze(bub)balls reactions we were. Each trick was met with “Oooh’s” and “Ahhh’s” and squeals of delights… and they weren’t all from me. There’s something about bubbles that takes you straight back to your childhood – a place where life feels magic.

The show’s title is accurate too- there were a gazillion bubbles and it was Unbeleva-bubble!
By the end of the show we are completely immersed in a sensory experience – literally – my son was trying to catch and taste the bubbles flying towards us during the freaking amazing LASER show. Oh did I forget to mention the gazillion LASERS?

Fun Fact: My mate Mick from Adelaide has a Guinness World Record and that used to impress me… until I heard Melody and her family have SEVENTEEN Guinness World Records for bubble alchemy and feats including 181 people in one bubble!

You can get the incredible bubble mix and tools after the show to recreate your own bubble extravaganza at home – you don’t even need a bath. The Gazillion Bubble Show is only here for a couple more days – 1pm and 7pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
