All Blown Up Balloon Creations was proud to have clothed one of our very special clients, Ladies of Virtue (LOV), with balloons as they marched through the streets of Chicago celebrating the 89th Annual Bud Billiken Parade and Festival, while carrying All Blown Upís creations made especially for them.

The Bud Billiken Parade is the oldest and largest African American parade in the U.S.  Recognized as a day of family fun and celebration that kicks off the return to class for Chicago school children, the parade has become an anticipated event in Chicago each August. Families and friends have participated, enjoyed and attended the Bud Billiken for generations.

We are very proud to have displayed our creations as part of this yearís celebration!

The Village of Matteson kicked off the school year with its 1st Annual Back to School - Stay in School Supply Drive.The Village provided everything needed to start the school year off right - Free Food, Hair-Cuts, Hair-Brading, Bouncy Houses, Face Painting, Uniform Swap and Lots of FUN! And, of course, balloon creations by All Blown Up!

What a way to start the school year!  A great time was had by all!!

Trunk parties have become a way of demonstrating that education ó specifically college ó is worth CELEBRATING!And, All Blown Up was delighted to provide special creations for families celebrating their children as they transitioned from high school into college!

More families are recognizing the need to publicly declare to departing students that they belong at the university they selected and have all the support they need to make it to graduation!  And balloons are a great way to say it!
