May 6 2011, Principality of Hutt River, Australian continent

Greetings Sir,
I was charged with organising and promoting the event here in the Principality.
We promoted the Bubble Day via our website and to some journalists during varied interviews with the media that I am aware of.

Some children blew bubbles to the interest of tourists whilst some of us watched on the morning alongside the Secession Monument and outside  of the main reception office as it was a beautiful clear sky and sunny day. I believe a childcare centre in the nearby town of Northampton was also going to be joining in blowing bubbles with the kids there on May 06 but I have not had it confirmed that it was done, only that it was planned.

No photo’s were taken of our small event that I am aware, it was not thought of as it was an action for those who wished to participate and we have a policy of not publishing children’s photo’s so there was no thought to it, We were not seeking publicity for ourselves but rather enjoyed taking part in what was simply “A nice thought/dream”.
Thankyou for the invitation to be a part of the event and please let us know should it happen again.

HI Flip,
We had a grand time. Took mom to lunch, then off to San Lorenzo park.  The homeless people hand out there, so when we showed up, they asked us, “Are you doing bubbles today?” They saw us doing it about a month ago, so they got all excited about it.
I had two other local bubble artists show up. Brian Lawrence, and Tom Noddy. Brian brought his giant garland wand that makes lots and lots and lots of large size bubbles. Plus some of out Facebook and just Santa Cruz friends came by too.  I took some video, I just have to take the time to do some editing.  It’s mostly bubbles.
At San Lorenzo Park, there is a bridge that goes from downtown Santa Cruz over the river and into San Lorenzo Park. It’s about 40 or 50 feet down to the grass area below. We were doing them off the bridge and  and the bubbles were just falling down and floating all over! As people were walking by they would stop and take pictures. We were wishing people happy blowing bubbles day! Make bubbles to war! They loved it.
Mom and my brother sitting on the bench just watching it all. They liked it a lot!! 
Thank you so much for starting this. I had thought about it in passing so I’m glad you did something about it! We are talking about actually growing it into an event where we will need a permit. The park lends it’s self to festivals well. There is even a stage that is surrounded by water on three sides, they call it duck island stage, were a band could play. I would like to see it become something fun for people to look forward to year after year. Santa Cruz is such an artistic/Eco-friendly/playful town that I think they would embrace it!
Blessings & Bubbles!

May 6 2011, Lent, the Netherlands

Marlolijn Korteweg who was present with a friend at the closing ceremony of the International Blowing Bubbles Day in Lent wrote: “I send you the pictures that I took of the blowing soap bubbles ceremony. I have no censorship, so you can see for yourself what you want to keep. I thought it was a great initiative, repeating worthy”.

Louie Foxx writes on his own blog:

Today is International Blowing Bubbles Day! I’m doing a few shows today and I’m going to include my Bubble Act as part of the show in honor of the day. Yesterday I made a little video that teaches how to do a bubble trick. You don’t need anything special, just some bubble soap, a zip tie and a straw.

Happy International Blowing Bubbles Day!

May 6 2011, Some Photographs Of The Exhibition

The exhibition in Lent in “De Dorpsschuur” was photographed but mine were all to bad of quality for posting. Fortunately there were some pictures taken by others who did send them to me. On the first floor there was the mail art exposed and on the ground floor there were some paintings made by me and pictures out of the blog. There was also a small documentation about the preparations for the International Blowing Bubbles Day 2011.

“We had a Spirit of the Wild course and used the bubble blowing as our closing.  We blew into the being all that we wanted to spread in the world.  It was great and the guys on the course loved it!!”
