HELIUM BALLOON POLICY
Downtown Blacksburg, Inc. acknowledges the potential dangers to the environment which can be caused by helium filled balloons.
Therefore the use of helium balloons at festivals and events presented by Downtown Blacksburg, Inc. will not be permitted.
Balloons filled with helium are not allowed to be sold, given away, on display, or in the booth of any vendor. Balloons that are not filled with helium, such as water balloons and balloons used to create balloon animals are allowed but must be correctly disposed of in a trash can after use.
Policy Adopted October 2014
We are excited to be celebrating the 35th anniversary of Steppin’ Out this year to take place on August 7-8, 2015.
As the festival has grown and the economy has improved over the past ten years we have been proud to remain steadfast in our festival fee structure. However we now need to raise our fee to a more competitive rate in order to continue providing the high quality offered by our festival for 35 years. We will be using a two step- two year increase plan to bring the fee up to $200. Your fee this year to participate will be $175.
Thank you for your continued participation of Steppin’ Out.
