Tokyo Themed Street Fair Booth: Minibar
Minibar Chicago requested a Tokyo themed booth for the 2011 Market Days street festival in Chicago. The centerpiece was an impressive 26’ long gold metallic dragon, which we added special effects to, including glowing illuminated eyes and the ability to breathe smoke. The structure was of the very largest installations at any Market Days, in spite of being significantly scaled back at the very last minute. Everything had to be installed in about 5 hours. It was one of the most talked about features of the festival. Additionally, we included custom fortune cookies with clever minibar fortunes.
We designed another smaller booth space across the street. Lanterns were intended to be stung between the structures, but wasn’t permitted by officials at the last minute.
