WELCOME TWO CARTOON CHARACTER BALLOONS TO BALLOON FEST 2019
Thanks to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital and SSM Health Medical Staff you are in for a treat when these two popular look alike cartoon balloons inflate in Foundation Park during the 30th Annual Balloon Festival on August 16, 17 & 18. Adults and kids alike will enjoy seeing Puddy Cat and Yellow Bird side-by-side. Puddy Cat was built in February 2019 and has only appeared at 3 balloon festivals so far this year. He has a 6 foot long yellow feather hanging from his mouth that he plucked right off of Yellow Bird. That’s as close as he has ever come to eating Yellow Bird. Yellow Bird is a 77,000
cubic ft. envelope and Puddy Cat is a 90,000 cubic foot envelope. Bring your family, friends, lawn chairs and cameras to Foundation Park for Balloon Fest 2019!
