Balloon Glow

The Balloon Glow kicks off the Blossom Time Festival on Thursday, May 24, at 8 p.m. This tradition is family friendly and very fun.

Carnival Rides

Thrilling roller coasters and fun carnival rides are popular attractions during the Blossom Time Festival. They open on Thursday at 5:30 p.m., continue on Friday starting at 2 p.m. and open at 10:30 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. As soon as tickets begin selling, you can purchase them online here. Food trucks will be available at Triangle Park for snacks and refreshments. Don’t miss the chance to spend time with family and friends at the carnival!

Blossom Parade

After the Blossom Time Run at 9 a.m. on Sunday (you can register here) festival visitors will line the streets of Chagrin Falls to watch one of the main events — the Blossom Time Parade. Beginning at 2 p.m., various floats and parade marchers will travel from Chagrin Falls High School to the heart of the town. Prepare your kids to catch candy and see creative costumes. Arrive early to get a good view of the parade — around 30,000 people come each year!
