Hillsdale’s David Lima, pictured with one of his creations, joined 74 fellow balloon artists from around the world to participate in Balloon Manor 2014 in Rochester, N.Y. last week.

The team created a five-story sculpture of Jack and the Beanstalk using more than 50,000 balloons.

Ninja turtles, bunny rabbits, a bicycle, and a New Year’s Eve-inspired chandelier are just some of the many balloon sculptures Lima creates via requests from children or from his own imagination.
