Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles
Birmingham is known for its Christmas market which takes over some of the city centre near Christmas, and while it does get very busy it creates a very festive atmosphere in the city.
Despite the newspapers calling yesterday ‘panic Saturday’ referring to a supposed mass of people who were going to be last minute panic buying Christmas presents, the overall atmosphere seemed a lot more relaxed in previous years.
What do you do to entertain children in Birmingham city centre after battling the Christmas crowds? Help catch bubbles in the street made by a guy in a superman suit of course!
It’s not often these days you will see children playing in the street. But yesterday, a crowd gathered around this young man who created hundreds of bubble in the street capturing the attention of both young and old.
I love the expression captured on the guys face in this photo, but also the happiness of the children. How to make people happy this festive season? Get some bubbles, clearly.
Yet another example of why cities can be great places to bring people together, in this case in the facilitated by a fancy dress superman and some soapy water!
