Crazy Inflatables Around THON 2014

There are beach balls, letters and flags abound at THON, but some groups took it to another level when they brought their own crazy inflatables.

A-7, a special interest organization, brought an inflatable whale to THON. One of their dancers likes dolphins, so they tried to find a dolphin for her but were unsuccessful. When they found the whale, they figured it was close enough as it also fits in with A-7′s beach theme.

Ohana, a special interest org, is known for having Hawaiian themed outfits and props, which is where the inflatable palm tree comes in.

Delta Upsilon and the Penn State Cheerleading team could be found in the stands with not only one, but two inflatables. Last year, the group didn’t bring any, but somehow a blue whale ended up in their section.

They enjoyed it so much, they decided to bring a whale and a penguin.

Penn State Powerlifting could be seen with this awesome red dinosaur. Their THON child, Conner, passed away two years ago, but his favorite animals were dinosaurs.
