There will be life-sized balloon dogs at Westshore Town Centre this week


Ready to raise the woof for a good cause, Victoria?

From August 3rd to 6th, you’re invited to Westshore Town Centre to immerse yourself in
uplifting and experiential art installations under the theme of ‘Air of Surprise.’

The bright and whimsical balloon dog art exhibit will feature everything from paintings to sculptures—even a photo op with life-sized balloon dogs!

Be sure not to miss this paws-itively spectacular event that is sure to get the whole family’s tails wagging.

Also, when you tag the shopping centre in your social media posts, you’ll have the chance to win a $200 gift card to spend at WTC—fur real!

And the best part?

Visitors are invited to “adopt” their fave balloon animal art pieces, and it’s all by donation with proceeds to Raincoast Dog Rescue in Victoria! Plus, you get to bring the not-so-furry friends home after can bring them home after the exhibit closes.

“QuadReal is so pleased that our retail properties are social gathering hubs within the communities they serve, and we are always looking for innovative ways to bring people together through unique and engaging experiences,” says Chrystal Burns, EVP of Canadian Retail at QuadReal.

“This year’s ‘Air of Surprise’ events connect our retail properties across Canada in a unique campaign designed for guests to engage with beautiful works of art right in their own backyard. It also allows us to give a few of our lucky visitors something back, as our appreciation for their loyalty to our local retail spaces.”
