Why should I go? The interactive pop-up art experience Happy Place is wrapping up its run in Boston this weekend. There are just four more days to explore the 12 rooms and 13,000 square feet of colorful, Instagramable scenes where kids and adults alike can play, pose, and (as the creators intended) lift their spirits. Highlights among the installations and multisensory rooms include the world’s largest confetti dome, which holds half a million pieces of confetti, an upside-down bedroom, and the Super Bloom, complete with 40,000 gold flowers growing from the ground and hanging from the ceiling.

Happy Place was created by event producer Jared Paul in November 2017; it sold out in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Toronto before debuting in Boston in April. It takes about an hour to walk through the entire experience. Arrive at least 5 minutes before your selected time slot and no later than 15 minutes after.
