Stretching 168 feet long and with 40 pillars of fire, Serpent Mother by San Francisco’s Flaming Lotus Girls is the most literal of snakes in Snakes and Ladders – and she takes the cake for the fieriest presenter to date.
Unfurling her spikes on Wednesday at 10 am, she will be nesting at Fort Calgary with nightly hair-singeing fire shows to check out on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (Beakernight). We will say this: she’s a jaw-dropping marvel no matter what time of day you meet her. Fire shows will run at the following times:
Wednesday, September 13 Thursday, September 14 and Friday, September 15 8:00 pm 9:30 pm Saturday, September 16 8:00 pm 9:00 pm 10:00 pm FREE! Serpent Mother is one of 14 sites across Beakerhead Snakes and Ladders; a larger-than-life adventure across multiple engineered experiences and artworks connected by a common theme: the ups and downs of invention. Each site will have a sign and board game tile – where you’ll get to choose your own navigational adventure!
