Residents of the Park Glen neighborhood in Northeast Fort Worth celebrated Easter Sunday, April 12, in style with the first ever Great Drive-Thru Bubble-In.

Neighborhood organizers trucked in more than 40 bubble machines to line neighborhood roads and allow area families to take a break from the social distancing and isolation routines that have become the norm during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We really wanted to inspire neighbors with creative, joyful solutions to quarantine and to encourage them to build the neighborhood they want to live in,” said Daniel Guido, Park Glen resident and event organizer, to the city of Fort Worth.

The free event was geared toward families and was open to all ages.

Machines lining neighborhood streets produced an estimated 25,000 bubbles per minute.


In total, those who attended the first ever Great Drive-Thru Bubble-In witnessed 6,720 ounces of bubbles take flight. Bubbles were donated by event organizers and members of Grace Community Church.
