Anthony’s entertainment complex includes a bouncy slide, castle, and pirate ship, as well as his main attraction: the Bangin’ Bungee. “This is a really large event, really good for our business and our exposure,” says Anthony, “plus it’s a gorgeous day, a great day for bouncing”.
Prior to the opening of the fresh market at the Shops at Wiregrass,
Joseph Nicotera begins unfolding the Bangin’ Bungee’s
suspension beams while his younger brother David
inflates the trampoline. This is the company’s first time operating at the fresh market.
Using a hand crank to bring the Bangin’ Bungee’s elastic cables into position Anthony Papania, owner and operator of Bangin’ Bungee Entertainment, is ready to begin operations for the day. “This is a big day for us,” says Anthony, as the support beams raise into position.
4-year-old Esperanza Bernal is one of the first customers of the day. She looks over with anticipation at her mother Catalina as Joseph secures Esperanza’s harness to the Bungee’s elastic cables.
Esperanza zooms into the air, hands raised, as the Bangin’ Bungee’s elastic cables bounce her up and down on the trampoline below. Joseph looks on, keeping a close eye on the young customer.
Esperanza isn’t the only one having fun at the Bangin’ Bungee entertainment complex. Her sister Adriana finds her own enjoyment on something a little less bouncy, the ground outside of the bouncy house.
With a few new items in hand, Esperanza’s grandparents Richard and Evelyn Acevado rendezvous with their family at the Bangin’ Bungee complex on the way out of the market. Smiles and fun for the children, and a nice day at the market for the adults; a rewarding day for all.
The Tampa Bay Fresh Markets, locations found on tampabaymarkets.com, are a favorite event of people in the Tampa Bay area interested in food, fun, and great shopping. Bangin’ Bungie chose to participate in the market, which took place on the morning of October 18th at the Shops at Wiregrass. This slideshow shows the construction of the entertainment complex, as well as a 4-year-old Esperanza Bernal’s first experience on the Bangin’ Bungee.
