This always popular event is as much fun as it sounds, striding and jogging through the scenic park in glorious sunshine as foam shoots and pours out at us from five different ‘bubble stations’ positioned along the route. As the bubbles get higher, the laughter gets louder. I can’t think of a better way to raise money for such a worthy cause.
