Domino Extravaganza!

The Bazaar on Apricot & Lime, 821 Apricot Avenue Sarasota, FL

Ok, Domino fans… get ready for some fun!! It’s a two-day Domino Extravaganza with professional Domino Artist, Nathan Heck. Watch Nathan as he builds something spectacular over the course of two days using 10,000+ dominos. Then at 3 pm on Saturday, watch it topple!

Nathan was seen on Fox’s tv show Domino Masters, consulted on Collateral Beauty starring Will Smith, and was featured in the documentary “Lily Topples The World“. Did you know Domino Toppling is one of the most-watched genres on YouTube? Oddly satisfying, yet highly addictive, watching elaborate domino displays fall has all the makings of an epic drama. A hero painstakingly diligent in a precise and long setup, heightened emotions, a climactic experience of a “will it make it or won’t to the end”.

Professional domino setups will be available for everyone to experience. And at 11 am each day, Nathan will offer a workshop with tips and tricks to build your own mini masterpieces

Read more about Nathan and this weekend’s event here! See you there!
