The Festival Of Balloons In Tigard, Oregon Is Hot Air Balloons, Live Music, Food And Crafts Booths, Carnival Rides, The Rogue Beer Garden, A Car Show, And The Always Impressive "Night Glow"
Every year, more than 15,000 spectators arrive at Tigard's beautiful Cook Park early each morning to experience the amazing sight of hot air balloons launching into the morning sky! Crowds spend the afternoon shopping at the craft vendor booths, daring the rides at the Funtastic carnival, rooting for their teams in the youth soccer tournament, and enjoying live music and entertainment for all ages. The hot air balloons are definitely the featured attraction of the festival, but it’s much more than balloons!
Of course it wouldn't be the Festival of Balloons without the ever impressive night glow on Friday and Saturday nights (illuminated hot air balloons), the Rogue Ales beer tent, Twilight Run on Saturday night, and Landmark Ford Festival of Cars on Sunday.
