Continuing through the weekend (April 17-18th), the Bend Spring Festival features a jam-packed agenda and has an element for everyone in the family.
Rock climbing, the Wanderlust GPS Eco Challenge and a bicycle obstacle course will occupy the adventurous spirits. Greenthumbs will enjoy the Central Oregon Master Gardener Demos and cultural aficionados will spend the afternoon wandering through the Middle-Eastern style open-air market.
The Clear 101.7 Mainstage will keep the music coming with an impressive line-up of musical talent from Bend, the Pacific Northwest and across the nation. The Fun Children’s Area will keep your little ones laughing, playing and smiling; engaged in music, dance, inflatable rides, gardening activities, face painting and more.
And the celebrating does not end! Join Bend’s Environmental Center for the 21st Annual Earth Day Celebration, Street Fair and Procession of the Species Parade! Starting at 11am on April 24th, art, music, live performance, interactive displays and costumes will fill the streets of downtown Bend (In front The Environmental Center on Kansas Ave, between Lava and Bond).
