The annual Festival of Balloons soars into Tualatin Valley for a weekend of lively entertainment, carnival and food.
The event kicks off with hot air balloon launches at 5:45 a.m. (weather permitting) and ends with the "Night Glow."
Weather permitting, the balloon ascension begins at 5:45 AM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. Come early and watch the teams assemble and inflate their crafts. Depending on weather conditions, most balloons launch by 7:00 AM.
There are no balloon rides during the festival; however, following the balloon launches, FREE tethered rides on the main event field are available on a first-come, first-served basis (weather permitting as long as fuel lasts).
Admission is $5-7 for a three-day pass, and is good for unlimited access to the festival.
