Ballinger Neighborhood is privileged to count among its diverse friends and neighbors, a richness of world cultures. Through the multicultural sharing of music, food, and good conversation we grow in understanding and respect for one another.

So what better way to celebrate diversity than with a party?

Many organizations were present to
meet people and provide resources

The first ever Ballinger Friendship Festival was held on Saturday, September 7 from 1 to 5pm at Brugger's Bog Park on 25th NE. 

The food was delicious and free

The food, music and fun were free, and included arts, crafts, games, a selfie photo booth, and face painting.

They held the entire festival and cleaned up before the weather turned into a major storm at 8:30pm.

Beautiful clothing
