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.
