It’s the fun-filled Festival of Balloons in Tigard and it’s happening June 22nd, 23rd, and 24th 2012! The hot air balloons are definitely the featured attraction of the festival, but … it’s MORE than just balloons!
Get down to Cook Park EARLY (5:45 am – 6:15) 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. Visit the GameTime Fun Zone on Friday and Saturday afternoons for kids of all ages. Eating contests for both adults and kids, new this year! Don’t miss the Festival of Cars on Sunday presented by Landmark Ford. Of course, it wouldn’t be the festival of balloons without the ever impressive Northwest Natural Night Glow on Friday & Saturday nights; the Rogue Beer Garden, live music on the Frontier main stage; Funtastic carnival fun center, clowns, cotton candy, and a whole lot more! It’s MORE than just balloons!
Weekend events will include a carnival, craft and commercial exhibitors, good food, Twilight 5K Run, GameTime Fun Zone Festival of Cars, premiere youth soccer tournament, rib and corn eating contest, Rogue beer and of course morning hot air balloon launches (5:45am – 6:15am) and NW Natural Night Glow (weather pending)!
