TWO Stages of Entertainment at Balloon Fest!
With TWO stages of live entertainment at Centralia Balloon Fest guests are sure to find their favorite tunes! This weekend long festival will be celebrated August 19, 20, 21. Local artists will be performing across two stages at Centralia Balloon Fest.
“In year’s past there has been one stage for entertainment on the east side of the park near the food vendors. In 2021 we added a second stage by the craft fair on the west side of the park. Performances at the Picnic Stage (East) and Craft Stage (West) will be happening simultaneously for all three days, so visitors can choose which performances they would like to attend.” – Marcus Holland, Chamber Director
