First up was a knitted thing. Giant. Pink.
Here's a kid sitting on the lifeguard chair inside the giant pink knitted thing.
It's a pussy hat, which for some reason has long ties. Very cool.
I took a bunch more pictures, but my dang camera is not talking nicely to my dang computer yet, so I have to e-mail the pictures to myself. If I decide now that I want another picture... I just heave a sigh and move on, because I am done with e-mailing pictures for now! But I can tell you that there were some holes in the pink fabric and you could see white fluffy stuffing. I wonder if there is a "making of" video.
This next one was wild! There were cranks on each of the four sides of this big wooden box, and you could turn them and make a siren sound. Wow! Noisy and dizzy-making!
Of course, I was wondering if a knitted blanket like this would be just too crazy.
More noise! These big red hanging pieces spun around as you walked past them, and the hardware squeaked and screeched. They look soft, but they are covered plywood. Interactive: you get to walk through the redness.
I did not shove the little kids aside to get up on the chair, but apparently you can look at it from above.
Nice blue sky, eh?
This was a different sort of noisy: hundreds of plastic pinwheels whirring in the wind, on a frame that looks sort of like a nuclear plant cooling tower. Not a CANDU reactor, of course, but it's a symbolic thing. Also looks great against a bright blue sky!
Now, then. This one was meant to make noise, but didn't really! Many tubes, they turned, you could yell into them...
I liked this one but it didn't look like much from outside. This is looking out from the shelter of the covering. Nice.
This last one was also hard to photograph in its entirety. Wooden swirls. It looked like giant bookshelves.
It was really nice to get out and see these, but it was very cold! We saw someone in a wetsuit go out on a paddle board, but everyone else was bundled up against the wind, and the nearby coffee shops were packed. Not a speck of green on the trees anywhere, either. I can't wait for spring!
