How lucky was I that an accidental glance at a friend’s Instagram feed  brought me to Pier 17 at the tail end of a two-day visit by a 50-foot inflatable Pink Bear from Korea, which goes by the name of Bellygom.

See more fun photos from that trip by following me on Instagram at @WorleyGigDotCom!

Close to the end of every summer, I make my annual Friday evening pilgrimage to Coney Island to walk on the boardwalk, explore the rides and games at Luna Park, eat a hot dog at Nathan’s, watch the freaks, and check out the amazing fireworks show!

After a short while spent observing the scene, you will start to notice folks lugging around various huge, oversized stuffed toys they’ve won playing the games. This year, the Giant Pink Banana was a popular prize for several of the games!
