Were any rainbows harmed in the creation of the bubbles?
No. Not a single rainbow was harmed in creating the color. The bubble formula we use is a non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, safe, hypoallergenic formula that is colored by FDA approved food coloring. The powder that is used is basically food grade cornstarch and is 100% natural and safe. As with anything, you will want to avoid from getting the powder in your eyes or mouth.
Can my kid run for free?
If you have a child that is 7 years old or younger, they get to get their bubbles on for free! Yahoo!

What if I am just not a runner?
Perfect! The Bubble Palooza celebrates survivor-ship! If you have the ability to smile, then come get your color on! You will find PURPLE grandparents holding hands with their grandkids walking beside GREEN college students in love! This day is about sharing your bubbles and a smile.
How does the Bubble Bash work?
At the finish line you will find that your epic bubble adventure has just begun! Every 15 minutes we turn on the Bubble Blasters and they go to work on covering you head to toe in a bubbly rainbow that will completely kick your butt. Then we get everyone together and launch color packets into the air as a toast to a survivor you know as everyone disappears into a wonderful cloud of color!
Why form a team?
Smiling is the natural byproduct of covering your friends in handfuls of colorful bubbles! Teams are made up of four or more people. There is no relay part to the course, so you can finish together and disappear like a bubble ninja in the mountains of rainbow bubbles at the finish line.
Can I bring a stroller on the course?
The colorful bubbles need to be placed on a natural environment so they do not stain the concrete so some of your path may require a little extra work to move your stroller along. If you are prepared for this, please bring a stroller.

Is there a way to get clean after the Bubble Bash?

Baby wipes and a couple good showers will eventually return you back to a your pre-bubble bash self.

Is the Bubble Palooza timed?
Nope! Have fun! Get your bubbles on!
Can I get a refund?
We are unable to issue refunds due to the scope of setting up the event. If a leprechaun invites you to Ireland the day of the race and you have already preregistered, just send a friend to pick up your Bubble Palooza gear.
What should I bring to the event?
- A Bandanna. As you pass through the bubble stations you may want to have something to wipe the bubbles out of your eyes.
- A Zip-lock Bag. Depending how much time you spend popping bubbles at the Bubble Bash, you may end up a little wet. Putting your phone, money and car keys in a Zip-lock is great way to keep things dry.
- Rubber Bands. If you twist your white shirt into a knot and then wrap rubber bands around it, you will be able to create an awesome tie dye t-shirt!
- A Trash Bag. If you spend a lot of time playing in the bubbles at the Bubble Bash, you may end up pretty wet and full of color! To make sure that you don’t stain your car seat on the way home, you may want to put down a trash bag and bring a towel to dry off with. Please leave the trash bag and towel in your car.
- Money. There will be food vendors and Bubble Palooza gear available for purchase.
