Balloons Over Bend seeks volunteers

For 25 years, Saving Grace has hosted their annual summer Children's Festival. This will be the 3rd annual Balloons Over Bend Children's Festival benefiting Saving Grace at Riverbend Park, a collaboration of the Saving Grace Children's Festival & Balloons Over Bend.

The RBC Balloons Over Bend Children's Festival presented by PacificSource is the largest family festival in Central Oregon, and one of the most beautiful events Bend offers. The festival brings families, visitors and businesses together in a community celebration that has something for every generation and demographic to enjoy. It offers a great opportunity to promote healthy relationships and enjoy time together as a family.

Volunteers are needed for the event on July 20th and 21st. The festival runs from 10-5pm on Saturday and 10-2pm on Sunday. These days are split into shifts for volunteers. If you're interested in signing up for a shift please contact Christina at 541-382-9227 or .

Also, if your group/business would like to host a kid's activity booth at the festival, there is still availability. It's free to host a booth; Saving Grace just asks that you provide your own materials and volunteers. If you're interested please contact Lauren for more information at   

The RBC Balloons Over Bend Children's Festival is a fundraiser for Saving Grace. Saving Grace provides comprehensive family abuse and sexual assault services and promotes the value of life without violence.
