On Saturday, March 31, enjoy the second annual Kids Jumping for Autism Festival, a family-friendly festival held at the Illinois Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds. The event features a 60-foot-long hot air balloon obstacle course, a 40-foot-long ninja bounce and slide, and a 30-foot long-double slide with castle. Additionally, Sky from “Paw Patrol” and Spiderman will be available for meet-and-greets from noon to 2 p.m., and more than 40 vendors selling locally owned products, along with a bake table, award-winning face painter Deidre Rosenberger and 13-year-old balloon artist Kyle Nueber. Festival admission is free, and the bounce house fee is $5 for one half-hour of jumping, or $10 for a bracelet that will grant the wearer one full day of jumping. A portion of bracelet proceeds will support The Autism Clinic at the Hope Institute for Children and Families. For more information about the Kids Jumping for Autism Festival, call 731-3821.
