It's time for Independent Bookstore Day!

We're so excited to celebrate one our favorite times of the year! It's going to be an all-day party, so check out the array of delights we have in store for you.

IBD Spirit Week! Join Red Balloon in celebrating the days leading up to Independent Bookstore Day by dressing up for IBD Spirit Week! Since we're closed on Mondays, we welcome crazy hats every day of the week!

Theater in the Parking Lot with Drew Brockington! We'll be kicking off celebrations from 10:30-11:30am with a parking lot show by local author Drew Brockington! Drew will be joined by his special whiskered friends,  Waffles and Pancake! Catstronaut lovers won't want to miss this one.

Twin Cities IBD Passport! It's time again for the annual Twin Cities Independent Bookstore Day Passport! You'll have a full week to get your passport stamps to activate coupons—April 23 through April 30. At Red Balloon, you can get your passport stamped (or pick-up a passport!) during our usual hours, Tuesday - Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 12pm-5pm.

Patio Fun! Join us on our patio for bubbles and games and the chance to win prizes from our special treasure chest!

Live Music! Red Balloon will be joined by The Four Tones from Edina High School for live music on the patio from 2:00-3:00pm.
