25th Anniversary Tustin Street Fair And Chili Cook Off
After a long day of enduring the Hot Sun and even hotter chili tasting at the Tustin Street Fair and Chili Cook Off, we get to reflect upon an event that brought 40,000 visitors to the Old Town Tustin area. This event is also known for the largest single day cook off in the entire world.
We decided to setup a vendor booth to showcase many of the flower arrangements as well as some of the unique balloons that we feature on our website. This year we decided to do something special for the city of Tustin as well.
Since August of 2007 we have spent much time working on our skills for constructing balloon arches & balloon columns. We have done many over the past two years and wanted to take the next step which was constructing an even larger balloon arch. This one was constructed using 300 16 inch Red and Silver latex balloons.
I must say it was a little more difficult then we imagined. The Balloon Arch stretched 85 Feet long and was constructed on the corner of El Camino Real and El Camino Way. It took approximately 1 hour 1/2 to construct and was moved from the Construction Site to the Corner of Main Street and El Camino Real where it raised over the street lights measuring 25 feet high.
Everyday Flowers donated this massive balloon arch for the 25th anniversary of the event. We would like to thank the City of Tustin and of course want to congratulate all of the winners of this years Chili Cook off.
It was a great experience and we thank all of the visitors that stopped by our booth this year. We made new friends with many of the local vendors that participated this year and of course we sampled a good amount of chili as well. We even had the chance to see our good friends from Pizza Shack located in Tustin at the event.
