Bangkok children ought to spend some of their school holiday at the balloon-intensive “Kids Carnival: Little Nemo in Slumberland” at Siam Paragon’s Parc Siam from October 17-21.
It’s a French touring carnival with two dozen inflated characters and is making its first appearance in Southeast Asia right here.
“The balloon show is the work of world-renowned French street-theatre troupe Plasticiens Volants and will feature spectacular giant inflated puppets flying over Parc Paragon, combined with stunning lighting and music,” says senior executive vice president Mayuree Chaipromprasith.
Little Nemo is the cartoon character that Winsor McKay first drew for the New York Herald Tribune in 1905, which went on to book and film adaptations and even an opera.
In “Slumberland”, he has a fantastic dream, which is recounted with 20 colourful floating inflatables, including a magical flying bed whose legs grow to nine metres, a floating castle and vast raspberry fields.
