Día del Niño (Children’s Day) community fiesta brings families to Bend Church of the Nazarene

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) – It was all about the kids – and their families – having fun Sunday afternoon at the El Día del Niño (Children’s Day) community fiesta put on by the Bend Church of the Nazarene on NE 27th Street.

The event, which drew about 800 people, included kids getting to take a swing at suspended, traditional piñatas (and eventually a scramble for the candy), as well as bounce houses, games, raffles, food and music.

"It was a great day!" said Jason Visser, kids and family pastor at "Bend Naz," as the church is known by many.

The Mexican holiday takes place each year on the last day of April, a national celebration of children and childhood.

Visser said, "This is the 9th year that Bend Naz has hosted our Día del Niño community fiesta. The event is a celebration of two of our biggest values as a church: kids and families, and the different cultures that make up our church community.

"There are 25 different countries from Central and South America that are represented within our Spanish-speaking service," he added.
