February: Travis Scott’s Astroworld Custom Inflatable Spaceman

Popular artist Travis Scott released his Astroworld album on August 3rd, 2018. Following the album release, Travis Scott went on his “Wish You Were Here” tour from November 2018 through March 2019. The tour went around the US, including a stop in his hometown of Houston on February 13. So, you know Travis had to go all out for his hometown! The concert was held at the Houston Toyota Center, selling out all 14,000+ seats. These fans experienced a spectacular performance, matched by the crazy stage sets.

February: Forbidden Kingdom Music Festival Custom Inflatable Dragon

Shortly after the Travis Scott concert, Boca Raton, Florida hosted the annual Forbidden Kingdom festival. Forbidden Kingdom is a bass and dubstep music and arts festival held over a late February weekend in Florida. According to their website, the festival creates a story, a “Forbidden Tale” that paints a fantasy picture of the Forbidden Kingdom, complete with characters and a plot written by Joshua Dean Perry. The website provides a description of a major character – the dragon. “The Dragon is Forbidden Kingdom’s oldest and most powerful inhabitant” ( IDG captured the essence of this dragon with an impressive inflatable that loomed above the crowd on top of the stage. The picture below is from the 2019 Forbidden Kingdom Festival.

August: Canutillo Eagles Mascot Tunnel

The summer continued with an August high school football game. The Canutillo Eagles beat the Eastlake Falcons handily with a final score of 41-21. Also, to start the game, the Eagles ran onto the field through an awesome inflatable mascot tunnel! IDG created this tunnel with custom dimensions and design according to Canutillo’s preferences. They had us create the top of the inflatable as an intimidating 3-D eagle head. In addition, under the mascot were the tunnel walls. They were Canutillo blue with white and orange “Canutillo Eagles” printed largely on the sides.

Coming from my experience with playing high school football, I know the feeling of running onto the feeling in front of friends, family, and fans. I can only imagine the excitement when rushing onto the field under a giant inflatable depiction of my school mascot. The Canutillo Eagles mascot tunnel is pictured above, and there are many more in our Custom Entryways page! So, please consider Inflatable Design Group to support your school’s athletics!

November: Custom Inflatable Morty Slide for the Adult Swim Festival

Finishing off the year, the talented team here at IDG created a huge slide for the Adult Swim Festival in November.
