This much anticipated event completely dominated the local mainstream media. And no wonder. It had a stunningly original and audacious premise: Two immense puppets would arrive in our isolated metropolis and pretty much take it over for three days. It had a compelling story as well as memorable images, set to music. Talk about colour and movement!
And just as it was all over the newspapers, TV news bulletins and radio waves it was also all over Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and all the other social networks. People were sharing shots and videos galore.
I took some photos of the diver character near the Horseshoe Bridge and shared them on one of my pages. They reached hundreds of people.
