GOOSE ISLAND — A 20,000-square-foot exhibit full of confetti, rubber ducks and rainbows is aiming to make Chicagoans a little happier.

The pop-up exhibit, called Happy Place, will open this June at 1004 N. Elston Ave. in Goose Island. Visitors willing to cough up $30 admission will be able to walk in a dome decorated with half a million pieces of confetti, sit in a bath tub while surrounded by rubber ducks or pose for photos in a room with 40,000 golden flowers.

The exhibit will also have rooms decorated with candy, giant letters and other features. Attendees will be able to get a drink at a lemonade stand or eat “delicious and Instagrammable happy-themed” foods, according to a Happy Place news release.

“Happy Place was founded on the simple idea that the world could use a lot more happiness,” said creator Jared Paul in a statement.

The exhibit will run June 28-Aug. 6 and general admission tickets go on sale online June 4 and will start at $30.

The exhibit has previously appeared in Los Angeles, where it had more than 100,000 visitors, according to Happy Place.
