Balloon Artist Builds Train In Newgate Mall
OGDEN, Utah – An artist has created a train in the Newgate Mall that’s made entirely of balloons.
KSL TV’s Haley Smith took a trip to Ogden to see the balloon train, which is being build Friday and Saturday.
It’s the work of Locally Twisted owner Jeff Kimber and his team of balloon artists.
“There’s probably about 12,000 – 15,000 (balloons) by the time we’re done,” he said.
Spectators who take selfies and post them on social media using the hashtag #LocallyTwisted and #TheNewgateMall could win something.
“We’ll find a winner and bring a balloon surprise for Christmas,” Kimber said.
“It’s not going to be as big as the train,” he added, “but it will be good.”
