Balloon Art by Merry Makers is teaming up with Life Stories Child and Family Advocacy to bring a huge event, called the Big Balloon Build, to Greeley this summer! It will be held at the Aims Community College Welcome Center on July 20 – 23, 2023. Proceeds will benefit Life Stories Child & Family Advocacy, which gives a voice to children who have been abused or neglected in Weld County.
Only a few select locations are chosen each year to host the international event and Greeley, Colorado made the list, thanks to the efforts of local Balloon Business owner, Allison Dunning with Balloon Art by Merry Makers.
Davies first created the Big Balloon Build in 2013 as a way to challenge himself and his staff in making enormous balloon sculptures and learning new techniques. Since then, he has evolved it to work with a charity, using more than 100,000 balloons and bringing in 70 of the world’s most talented balloon professionals, to create a once-in-a-lifetime immersive Balloon Wonderland all in aid of a local charity to give them a platform to fundraise and raise awareness. The Big Balloon Build was created in the United Kingdom, and first made its way to the United States last year.
Greeley, Colorado will only be the fourth time it’s been seen in the US, and Davies is excited to partner with Balloon Art by Merry Makers and Life Stories to help make a difference to the community.
