Look to the Sky for Balloons Over Bend Children’s Festival

Unique festival promotes a healthy, fun lifestyle for children all weekend at Riverbend Park.  

For 24 years Saving Grace has celebrated healthy families and healthy communities with the Saving Grace’s Children’s Festival. Saving Grace is excited to join in partnership with Balloons Over Bend again, to create a one of a kind family festival that will continue to benefit Saving Grace and their work throughout Central Oregon. This remains of one Saving Grace’s largest and most important fundraisers.  July 21-22 at Riverbend Park, the festival runs 10am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday 10am-2pm.  

This festival promotes a healthy, fun lifestyle for children. Nearly 40 local organizations and businesses are hosting booths with a variety of games and crafts for kids of all ages. Everything from face painting to science experiments, and even a dunk tank! This is in addition to a premier bounce house area as well as food and craft vendors. All of this and free entertainment on the main stage all weekend long.  

This is a great way to enjoy a fun filled weekend as a family. The festival is free, but tickets must be purchased to participate in the booth activities. Tickets are $1 per activity with a variety of family packs available. For every family pack purchased you will be entered into a children’s bike giveaway.  

There will also be a “bouncy village” for kids of all ages to play. You will need a separate wristband for this area. It’s an all day pass for unlimited bouncing. Both Cuppa Yo locations are pre-selling the bouncy village wristbands all week long for a discounted price.
