Kicking-off this Thursday, November 1, 2018 through January 1, 2019, the visual and sensory playland known as HAPPY PLACE is set to take over Toronto! Designed for this Instagram-obsessed generation this whimsical experience takes place at Harbourfront Centre with installations and activations filling our hearts and its 20,000 sq. ft. space.
As mentioned prior, visitors can expect:
-An all-new fully immersive Cookie Room, wrapped from floor to ceiling in chocolate chip cookie print and a six-foot-tall cookie ideal for snapping photos, bound to make your tummy rumble and delight all your senses
-Interactive canoe installation paying tribute to the great white north’s love of cottage country by local Toronto artist Jasmin Pannu
-A Candy Room featuring 63 gumball machines filled with 22,500 white and yellow gumballs and an all-new pink and yellow Candy Café, set the tone for the perfect sugary wonderland
-The X&O’s Room with thousands of lit up mirrors, featuring a lip-shaped couch and a heart shaped frame
-The new whimsical Happy Hallway where guests will interact with some HAPPY PLACE fan-favourite installations as well as new ones including a maple leaf-themed custom mural designed by Toronto artist Jasmin Pannu
-The HAPPY PLACE signature Yellow Bathtub Cubby, filled with rubber ducks
-Dancing on the Ceiling, an upside-down room where you can rock out like Lionel Ritchie
–Confetti Angels Room, where you can shake off the winter blues by making happy confetti angels
-A lemonade stand with all of the proceeds going to a local charity
-A snack bar featuring yummy treats like HAPPY PLACE staple Rainbow Grilled Cheese, “Fun”nel Cake and Happy Hot Chocolate by @foodstudioTO
We had the pleasure of being among the first in the City to check it all out. It was a pure delight! What makes the place so vibrant isn’t just the activations, it’s YOU! Loved seeing all the gleeful faces and positive vibes which are much needed in these not-so-happy times.
Our favourite activations include the Yellow Bathtub Cubby, Dancing on the Ceiling and of course the Bouncy Ball Pool! And believe me, we have PLENTY of snaps and video to prove exactly how fun this all was!
Check it all out:
