PICK: Balloons Over Bend

Posted By on Fri, Jul 18, 2014 at 1:00 PM



Balloons Over Bend

BALLOONS
—The annual children’s festival starts bright and early with a morning hot air balloon launch, but the highlight of the day is the Night Glow—when balloons backlit by the roaring fire inside, like giant fireflies, float up into the starry sky just after dusk.

6 am and dusk. Riverbend Park. Free to watch. $600 for two adults to ride.
