Liquid Art Bubble Light Show At The Marriott In VA

Angelo and Marie's Fantastic Bubble Light Show at the Marriott in VA. Performed by Baltimore liquid artist Mark Angelo Askew and Brenda Marie Askew. What makes our bubble shows unique? It's not just a bubble show. Under low lights, it's a liquid art light show!

The parents and group leaders endured a long week of children's camp activities. They were evidently exhausted but kept carrying on. I was heartily welcomed and enjoyed the sensation that permeated the group long before our arrival and performance. The children remained engaged from start to finish, often jumping to their feet only to be told to take their seats. To their relief they shared in KIB, putting kids inside of bubbles. Once experiencing this for the first time their day was set and our job is done. We hope to be invited back for more liquid art surprises and a fascinating light show under low lights or even the starts

"I raise my Bright Star of Hope wand to the beauty of our diverse and multinational heritage. To those who tirelessly seek to work toward and sustain the common good of all. Thanks to you we stand together, more hopeful, united and secure in our future together."  - Mark Angelo Askew

Read more about how Angelo and Marie's Fantastic Bubble Show got its start and enjoy some breathtaking liquid art in the book "The Art of Bubble Blowing" written by Mark Angelo Askew and Brenda Marie Askew.

Kicking It With 5 New Bubble Wands

Happy Spring!

Festive Display - Exciting Extravaganza - Cool Fun - Magical Beauty 

We're doing our part of bringing in a happy fun filled Spring season for 2017 and beyond! Angelo and Maries Fantastic Bubble Show is kicking off the new season with 5 new bubble wands.

It's amazing what a performing artist can do with just one or two basketball size bubbles in the air. But when you're entertaining a large outdoor audience you want something bigger than life that hundreds, even thousands of attendees can enjoy at the same time. Well, we've got that certain something. 5 of them. Our colorful spring and summer  festival banners which are actually bubble wands unlike any you have ever seen.

Beautiful Festival Banner Bubble Wand

Stands 5.7 feet high and 2.8 feet wide

It's A Bubble Explosion!  

5 beautiful bigger than life gigantic bubble wands sure to make you go WOW! And just in time to make your next Springtime event something really special. 

It's A Multi-bubble Wand Extravaganza!

These wands are designed to make overhead clouds of over a thousand or more bubbles at a time.  That's why each giant wand consists of over 100 mini bubble wands attached. That means they make more bubbles than you could ever imagine with one gust of wind. 

Enjoy the season. Turn an outdoor event into something more festive and exciting with our new fantastic bubble wand presentation. Best of all, if your event is in the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan area, Virginia or Philly we'll come to you with a free 30-minute bubble show to give you a taste of what we can do to enliven your next event. Find out more about our free bubble show at our website

The Ecstasy Of Life and Water

I am reminded of a story many have experienced in the west. The rain has not come for several weeks. The air is dry and dust rolls over miles of dry, lifeless and cracked land once used for farming.
Many have migrated north east. Others with no place to go remain, frantically fighting fires as the brittlebush and tumbleweed become wicks and ignites into flames under the scorching heat of the sun. The water is gone.  Nothing is left to consume. Life comes to slow end.

The sky darkens. It is not a dust bowl. Heavy clouds roll in. The welcome smell of moisture fills the air. Suddenly streams of water fall from the sky and smacks the ground. The rain clouds release their storage as ribbons of rain sweep across the plains in a bellow of smoky steam. Gushing water fills streams, rivers and springs to the point of flooding. People once at the edge of despair are suddenly in ecstasy screaming and laughing as they run from their houses arms open wide letting the rain soak in their eyes, faces, and open mouths, enlivening their once dried out bodies. Days later new life springs. Migrating animals return and the business of life begins again.

Celebrate Life

It's time to celebrate life giving water! What better way to do that than a pool party, backyard water hose games, a trip to the beach or water sport activities. Sheer joy!

Their is a similar reaction when adults and children behold for the first time another miracle of air and water. The amazing sight of giant translucent, luminescent rainbow colored bubble art form floating in the air. Imagine seeing an 8 foot long 4 foot wide bubble floating by glistening in the sun and flashing the most brilliant colors you've ever seen.  

The Ecstasy of Water Bubbles

Now is the season to bring your next gathering to life. Fill the lives of generations with the joy and ecstasy that only the beauty of miraculous shape shifting bubbles can bring. Enjoy bubble gazing,

bubble art, bubble games, bubble water sports and more. It's eye candy like no other. Visit Angelo and Marie's Fantastic Bubble Show web site and behold the sheer joy, wonder and science of water bubbles.

Try Not To Smile Challenge

Ever wondered, just how big can a bubble get? Just how high can a soap bubble fly? Can you do tricks with bubbles? Do adults like to play with bubbles as much as children? Can soap bubbles hold an audience captive, spellbound and send them smiling all the way back home? 

We've listed some of the top bubble videos ever posted on Youtube. See what you think.

Try to watch these videos without smiling. We dare you.


Make your own soap bubble challenge.

1. Make a wand using a wire hanger. Bend in the shape of the letter "P".
2. Make your own bubble juice with half a cup of dish liquid, two cups of water and two tablespoons of glycerine or syrup.
3. Pour into a bowl and stir slowly
4. Dip the wand and blow.
Try to make a large bubble, see how high it flies. See how long it gets.

How To Plan A Bubble Festival

So you want to plan a bubble festival. You may be eligible for a grant by the local municipality. This is a partial list for those planning group bubbling events. 

Bubble Event Location

Locate a spot that will allow plenty of parking and space for bubblers without bumping into each other.
Consider climate, weather, elevation, ground materials, overhead obstacles like tree limbs, local construction, private homes, commercial buildings and electric lines and such. Open space is the best space.

Insurance Policy and Permits

Get them well in advance

Sales License and Permit

If you're selling anything you'll need this.

Grant Use

If the grant policy permits use part of the grant funds for insurance, licenses and permits. For more information regarding grants for bubble festivals go to

Bubble Juice

I use non-allergenic ingredients and steam distilled water.
May I suggest that you make your bubble juice well in advance. Juice can hold up for weeks, some say months depending on the ingredients. I make my juice within 7 days before the event. Test it two days after juicing and the day before the event.  


Regarding setup, Mike Millers giant bubble party videos are very helpful...


Your target audience is kids. Parents are a plus and seniors love bubbles too. That said focus on parties, daycare centers, nursing homes, other festival venues, science centers and such.

Marketing Material

Send out materials such as flyers, email and web based invitations across social networks well in advance. Make a press release and post in community papers and mags.Send out bi-weekly countdown notices via website and social networks.. 

Event Management

Assign someone to oversee safety, quality control and accident prevention
Assign someone to an information table
Assign someone to a welcome table
Assign someone to do bubbling demonstrations
Assign someone to games and activities
Be very inclusive, welcoming and give plenty of commendation.

Games and Record Breaker Activities

Consider games that don't require a lot of running as juice gets very slippery on the ground.
Feature bubble size and number of bubbles record breakers


Demonstrate how to hold the wand and make bubbles. The best way to demonstrate is to do some bubbling yourself using a variety of wands. 


Background music is nice but keep it light, and be discreet regarding titles.


Make sure you have someone take quality pictures and video of the event. Be prepared to provide a brief interview with the local news and radio stations.

For more info regarding getting started you'll find some helpful info on the soap bubble wiki at

Supplies and Materials

Supplies vary depending on the details of your performance, activities, presentations, theme, etc.
If you're looking for a great place to purchase supplies go to the Bubble Show Store.

Beautiful Bubbles At Golden Hour Dusk To Twilight

Like liquid glass defying gravity enormous bubbles against the sunlight are a fantastic sight to behold. But as beautiful as bubbles are on a crisp sunny day, we discovered that bubbles are just as beautiful at dusk as this video reveals.

Brenda I enjoy bubbling against the sun but we also enjoy an evening of bubbling. One day we decided to start bubbling as the sun set. We were totally mesmerized by a display of beautiful soft pastels at golden hour.  From dusk to twilight the bubble surface reflected gorgeous colors of violet, lavender, coral, purple, ruby, fuchsia, salmon, peach, and orange red. Who knew? Watch hour video and notice how bubbles are equally as beautiful in the evening from dusk to starlit night.

Bubbles of Joy

The message in the art of blowing bubbles is so powerful no
words and explanations are required.  

What holds an audience captive by making them remember an almost forgotten childhood innocence and joy while leaving them spellbound and smiling all the way back home.  

We've listed videos posted on Youtube that seem to do just that and we dare you not to smile.


About The Author

Last summer, while throwing an entertaining bubble show for Baltimore city kids in the park, I remember spotting a gentleman driving by in a huge red Mack truck. He suddenly stopped in the middle of the road to gaze at the unusually large and colorful glistening bubbles floating high above our heads. He said he was blocks away and had to turn back around to see this spectacle. I knew he got the message and his day was made a little bit brighter.

Nothing thrills me more than to see the looks on adult's faces as they behold sparkling rainbow colored bubbles floating by with an unspoken message of unity, peace, joy, hope and most of all that silly feeling of sweet innocent glee they may not have felt sense they were little kids. 

Want to brighten your friends day? Send the "No Smiles Allowed Stare Dare Challenge" their way.
