Did you know there's a national convention and competition for balloon artists?

This year's Twist and Shout Balloon Convention was held in Louisville, Kentucky and features some of the top balloon artists in the nation including Duluth's own Lauralloons.

Laural posted one of her incredible creations on Facebook that won her 2nd place and People’s Choice Award in the Balloon Costume Competition. She also placed 3rd in the 3-minute , 2nd in the 12-minute, and 3rd in the Hairband categories. Way to go girl!!

Check her out online if you need some balloons for a party or a unique gift for someone. I've used her services a couple of times and I couldn't be happier with the service and her work.
