Sterling the Bubblesmith will be performing 11:00 am - 7:00 pm each day of fair.

Sterling Johnson began blowing bubbles with his hands more than 50 years ago. He developed his art into an act and has been sharing his love and wonder of bubbles with the public since 1999.

Sterling's performances have taken him throughout the United States, as well as in Dubai, Tokyo, Costa Rica, Mexico City, and the White House. He has appeared on several TV programs, and has provided bubble wrangling for TV commercials and for print ads.

Trained as an engineer and lawyer, he finds great satisfaction in offering the simple pleasures of bubbles for children and adults. "Bubbles are the one thing in my experience that consistently opens the door to people's hearts and imaginations, connecting them to their sense of joy and wonder, and I feel privileged to be present when this is happening."
