BURLINGTON, VT (Jan 14, 2021) –The pandemic has been hard on everyone, and seniors are certainly no exception. As families and friends maintain social distancing measures and so many activities have been cancelled, many seniors have found themselves more isolated and alone than ever before.

Sara Noth, Property Manager at Fern Hill Senior Housing in Burlington, VT, recently found a way to brighten the day and spark some fun and laughter. She called in a little help from The Inflatables…

Soon after, residents were surprised to find a strange sight right outside of their windows. The Inflatables’ silly cast of characters were blasting music and dancing in front of Fern Hill. A 7 foot tall inflatable dancing T-Rex was joined by an alien, a monster, a giant pink flamingo and a polar bear. Everyone had a blast, and some residents even braved the cold outside to see the show a little closer. 

RESIDENTS SAID

“I loved the dancers outside my window. It really made me laugh to see the dinosaurs, flamingo and monsters dance. Great music, too. Thank you so much!”

“Such fun!! Four thumbs up!!”

Who are The Inflatables?
