Thanks to everyone who joined us for Grand Meander 2021! Here are a few of the events that our members hosted…


Hark! Get into the holiday spirit with Red Balloon this Saturday in celebration of Grand Avenue’s Grand Meander! From 10:00am-4:00pm you can meander on over to our patio where we’ll have holiday photo opportunities with cut-outs of beloved characters like Dog Man and The Princess in Black (to name a few)! For those who meander into our store and make a purchase of $100 or more, you’ll also get a free Red Balloon Bookshop canvas bag! We look forward to seeing your smiling faces then.

A beloved tradition, Grand Meander combines the charm of historic Grand Avenue and the cozy communal spirit of the holidays
