  1. Good afternoon! Yes, I was at this event and really enjoyed the presentation of soap bubbles. Had a good time, thanks. The barbecue was normal. Had a good family day, met new people. I even new good found friends. I had a great time with my son and wife. It’s cool sometimes to distract from routine work and go to such events, refresh the brain and rest becomes even better. Good luck and have a nice day!
