His pineapple may be under the sea, but as SpongeBob’s 10th anniversary celebrations continue around the world, the tropical fruit will be emerging on the shores of Queensland as part of the Think Happy Tour in Australia.
A giant statue of the sponge will tour the country, kicking off on September 1. Tour site attendees can also enjoy the free SpongeBob SquarePants Bubble Garden, get SpongeBob temp tattoos and take part in a sponge throwing competition. They can also participate in the Happy Snap competition, in which they’re encouraged to take Happy Snap photos with the SpongeBob statue and upload them to www.spongebob.com for the chance to win a Nick Prize Pack.
The top-five pics, as selected by Nick Oz, will also be put on-air during the run of all-new eps on the kidnet between November 16 and 20 and the Ultimate SpongeBob SpongeBash marathon (November 20 to 22).
