The Arcata Bubble



A Pied Piper of bubbles led off the red, white and blue Fourth of July Bubbles Parade around the Arcata Plaza in the morning, followed by live music, a family-friendly Kids Zone, aerial silk dancers, a nonprofit fundraiser dunk tank and lots of food and drink options.

Vicky Joyce, owner of the store Bubbles, donated the usual mix of bubble-making options for the Bubbles Parade, but a "professional" by the name of "Bubbles" from San Francisco and his assistant Savanna Vocke, of Farmington, New Mexico, created a bubble storm before, during and after the parade.

The Arcata Chamber of Commerce, which helped sponsor the event, expanded the Kids Zone this year with RampArt Skatepark by turning one corner of the plaza into a miniature skate park. Also new this year and contributing to the "zero waste" goal for the event was the Community Cupboard's reusable cup supply.
