NJ woman makes 2nd attempt at bubble blowing record for autism awareness

    A year after trying unsuccessfully to break the world record for most people simultaneously blowing bubbles in multiple locations, the mother of an autistic New Jersey child will try again.

    Isabelle Mosca of Ventnor has lined up volunteers in more than 90 locations across the country for Friday’s attempt. They’re aiming to break the record of 34,529 set in 198 locations in England in 2007.

    Mosca’s autistic son, Kyle, loves blowing bubbles, as do many other autistic children. That led Mosca to use bubble-blowing as a way to raise money and awareness for autism research.

    She got thousands to participate last year, but people at many events failed to properly document their participation as required by Guinness World Records. This time she’s taking no chances, with detailed paperwork required.

    Interested? Here’s a couple participating locations in Jersey:

    9:45 a.m. on the Atlantic City Boardwalk near Wild Wild West Casino, Boardwalk at Indiana Avenue.

    10 a.m. in Pomona at the D-Wing Plaza, main campus, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, College Drive near Laurel Lane between Jimmie Leeds Road and Pomona Road.
