If you loved bouncy castles when you were a kid, there's an event happening soon in Florida that will transport you back to those amazing days. A museum in Jacksonville will be filled with luminous inflatable sculptures soon, so put a pause in adulthood for a night and go live this unique and fun experience.

The gardens of The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in Jacksonville will look like a glowing forest this winter thanks to the giant fabric sculptures filling the premises. The installation is called "Illuminating Nature"; you can interact with it and take a lot of pics, of course.  

The event will be happening on three different dates in December starting the 6.

When the sun goes down, you will be able to see the sculptures in all their splendor. You can interact with them, and even sit inside and relax while you see the colors change. Their shapes and the shades of the light used to make them shine gives them a cosmic quality that is truly magical.

There will also be music from DJ Dr. Um, and if you crave something yummy, go get a comfy beverage from the specialty drink bar. There will also be a gourmet cotton candy station provided by Floof.

The admission to this event is free for all.

If you feel like you need more than a drink and a snack, you can make a reservation for a delicious dinner at the Cummer Cafe. And make sure to attend the stained glass demonstration by artist Danielle Clark to complete the memorable evening.

The sculptures are the biggest attraction and they are a creation of Astrobotanicals. There are six different varieties and they are Dragon LotusMagnolia StarshipAngelic AsparagusSingular AsparagusCactus Blossom & Star Castle

Every sculpture is different, but all of them will add a sophisticated and magical dimension to the night. They look like extraterrestrial flowers and plants, so this experience will surely be one of a kind for all the attendees. 

You can visit this magnificent installation from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m on December 6, 10, and 13. Time to gather some friends and go make the most out of what's left of 2019. Don't you think?
