Festival of Balloons | June 23-25, 5:45 am Launch
The fun-filled Festival of Balloons in Tigard begins Friday, June 23rd and lasts through Sunday. The hot air balloons are definitely the featured attraction of the festival, but there’s more to see and do. Get down to Cook Park early each morning to experience the spectacular hot air balloons as they launch (weather permitting) and dot the morning sky. Spend the afternoon shopping at the craft and business vendor booths. Don’t miss the Festival of Cars presented by Landmark Ford Lincoln on Sunday. Of course, it wouldn’t be the festival of balloons without the ever impressive Night Glow presented by Walmart on Friday and Saturday nights; the Rogue Beer Garden, live music on the Main Stage presented by Grocery Outlet- King City; Funtastic carnival fun center, cotton candy, and a whole lot more!
