BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) — The balloon man is back on top.
Tim Thurmond of the Brighton area says he turned nearly 8,300 balloons into sculptures in 24 hours, reclaiming a record he had for nine years. He says he’s tired but “doing OK.”
The 32-year-old blew into balloons and sculpted them next to the Oh My Lolli! candy shop during last weekend’s Taste of Brighton festival. The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus (http://bit.ly/14Wi28C) says at least two people observed Thurmond the entire time. A paramedic was also nearby.
Thurmond averaged nearly six balloons a minute. Candy store owner Keith Karp calls it “absolutely remarkable.”
