Columns of Pride
The sun shined bright on this month’s Pride event held by the Cuban Club in Tampa! We set up two rainbow balloon columns next to Ybor Square for this event highlighting Cuban pride. These two themed pride balloon pillars were crafted to catch the eye within the traditional brick construction of downtown Ybor city.
These two pride themed rainbow columns were made with a heavy base and stood about seven or eight feet tall. We tied balloons to the beam in the center, constructing the Pride rainbow from top to bottom. It matched perfectly with the rainbow flags put up in the background by others in the LGBT Community. We save the red for the topper, making it a larger balloon than the rest! We wanted to be sure this caught your attention while walking up Whiting Street.
It’s always a pleasure to work with local groups, especially in a place as historic and storied as Ybor! Pride means so much to everyone, so what better way to celebrate than with colorful balloon decorations and festivities?
Some of the other pride themed decor we put together include parade floats, rainbow balloon arches, a pride themed rainbow heart, and we definitely made a ton of fun rainbow columns as well. One of our favorite installations was our PRIDE letters we built for Amazon in Ruskin.
