A popular race with kids 11 and under, this year’s Kids’ Crit course is around the uniquely round Compass Park, located in the heart of NorthWest Crossing.

3 and under: 1 lap
4-5 years old: 1 lap
6-8 years old: 2 lap
9 – 11 years old: 3 laps
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each age category. Free ice cream from the Umpqua Bank Ice Cream Truck in Compass Park provides a very cool and yummy finish! Click to download a registration form and submit it to the Umpqua Bank store in NorthWest Crossing by noon on Friday, June 28th. Participation is FREE but you must pre-register!

The Kids’ Zone should really be named “Kids’ Paradise”, complete with bouncy houses, face painting, petting zoo, learning activities, a climbing rock wall and more! Fun guaranteed! If your kids aren’t tuckered out by bedtime, we’d be pretty impressed…
The 6th annual NWX Criterium, presented by Bend Dermatology/DermaSpa is back with exciting races for pros, masters, juniors and amateur cyclists. Visitors won’t want to miss the action and with races starting at 4:25pm and concluding at dusk, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see some amazing athletes. This year’s races are under a new race producer, Trinity Bikes Cycling Promotions and feature an exciting new course around Compass Park .
Get it in gear and get here!
As a sustainable community, NorthWest Crossing would like to encourage Hullabaloo-goers to consider alternative forms of transportation. For neighbors who bike to the festivities, there will be ample bike parking available next to Pisano’s Pizza; just be sure to bring your own lock!
The Cascades East Transit system offers bus service to NorthWest Crossing via the #3 route, which operates until the 6:00 hour.
The Green Energy Bus will also be offering FREE shuttle service, 4pm – 10pm to and from downtown Bend. Pick-up/Drop off site is 900 Wall Street at the top and bottom of every hour.
We understand that sometimes, a vehicle is necessary. Parking is available at Summit High School, as well as street parking. We ask that you be considerate of our residents and their landscaping when parking on the street, taking care not to block driveways.
And when you shouldn’t drive home, Sober Dudes will be on hand to drive you (and your vehicle) home safely! Look for them by the mainstage.
Hullabaloo goes green…
C3 Events and NorthWest Crossing are excited to launch our “Towards Zero Waste” campaign, as we work with local partners to make a huge impact on our community in terms of preservation. Come visit our “Toward Zero Waste” stations throughout the event grounds to dispose of your recycling and compost, and chat with our wonderful volunteers in green about the campaign.
