Imagine "climbing" up a five-story beanstalk to find a giant, just like in the fairy tales. This year marks the return of Balloon Manor, and Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle of Airigami (a business that specializes in "the fine art of folding air") are making those tales a reality...almost. Airigami brings to Rochester "The VERY Tall Tale of Jack and his Beanstalk," which includes a ground-floor balloon "garden" and a four-story beanstalk where visitors can "climb" (via the escalator) to a balloon giant waiting at the top.
Balloon Manor will take place at the Sibley Building atrium (228 E. Main St.). You can check it out Wednesday-Sunday, February 5-9, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. A variety of family-oriented performances — including storytelling, live animal shows, music, and dance — will take at various times throughout the event. For more information, visit balloonmanor.com.
