ARLINGTON >> They're back. The giant, plastic spheres are returning to Arlington for the Second Annual Battle of the Bubble Balls. On Thursday, March 10, from 6:30-7:30 p.m., the Fisher Elementary School staff, Arlington Fire Department, and Vermont State Police will battle each other in the Arlington Memorial High School gymnasium. The cost is $5 per person or $20 per family with free admission to those ages three and under. Proceeds benefit Fisher activities.

Fisher Third Grade Teacher Charlie Cummings helps organize the event.

"Bubble Ball was such a blast last year, we had to bring it back. It's fun family entertainment, and everyone is just laughing the entire time. The police and firefighters are great sports to help us with this fundraiser, and we hope to have another large crowd this year."
