HTO Pendulum Wave, presented by Menkes
We had a Ball on Toronto’s Waterfront!
- HTO Pendulum Wave was a giant beach ball installation that was custom built for the festival by Canadian event design firm, Decor & More.
- Fast Facts
- The installation was made up of six, 6.5 ft beach balls
- Entire installation was be 22′ tall, 42′ wide & 12′ deep
- Installation weighed approximately 19,000 lbs
- More than 130 sq ft of material was used to create the beach balls
- Building upon the idea behind science’s most popular instrument, the balls were suspended from a large truss frame and swung back and forth like a pendulum.
- A replica ball was created for visitors to interact with and was a prime selfie spot.
- The HTO Pendulum Wave was located in HTO Park, 339 Queens Quay West
- The festival is proud to have Menkes as the exclusive sponsor of this unique installation.
