Riding High: Boom Goes the Drum Feeds a Festival on a Ferris Wheel

For Calgary, Alberta's, offbeat Beakerhead festival, which blends engineers with artists, Boom Goes the Drum produced the Periodic Table, which offered a fine-dining experience for nine "seatings" a day over the course of three days—all on a 40-foot Ferris wheel. 

The Special Events Advisory Board was high on the event--giving it a 2016 Gala Award nomination.
