Aloha! I’m Bear, owner/operator of "DOBOCO", born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii.
In 2014 (while living in Honolulu), I applied for a unique Balloon Shop Manager
position, just down the street from where I grew up. The owners of Hawaii Balloon Company (Hawaii's largest balloon decor and helium supplier), graciously brought me onboard and taught me the Art and Business of Professional Balloon Decor and Special Events, with their combined 60+ years of experience in the industry.
While attending Fort Lewis College (Marketing '11), I met my wife Emma (a Durango native) and together we decided to bring our Hawaii Balloon knowledge back with us to Durango, Colorado to spread joy, happiness and reconnect with our local community!
In February 2018, we launched Durango Balloon Company with our first balloon decor event -
the Snowdown Light Parade! Here we decorated and floated 3FT LED Helium Balloons from a friends Volkswagen Van, handed out 300+ Red Balloons,
and took 2nd Place for Best Balloon Float.
Next year, February 2019 (our 1 year Ballooniversary), we returned bigger and better with our SPIDERMAN themed float, and took 1st Place in the Best Balloon Category for the Snowdown Light Parade.
We then went on to celebrate our 1 year 'Ballooniversary,' with a large balloon drop,
live music, and costume contest inside the Main Mall in Downtown Durango!
The Main Mall Balloon Drop has now become an Official Annual Snowdown Durango event for our friends, family & local community
to get together and celebrate!
