Balloons Over Bend
A Picturesque Hot Air Balloon Festival
Balloons Over Bend is a fun-filled weekend in the middle of summer that not only offers opportunities to witness awe-inspiring hot air balloons at the Night Glow event and morning launches, but also fun and games at the Children’s Festival benefiting Saving Grace. You can enjoy a fun ride or just sit back and watch the beauties light up. During the Children’s Festival, Central Oregon businesses will offer an array of children’s activities, such as bounce houses, face painting, the Balloons Blast Kids Race and more. Kids will experience everything from educational experiments, carnival games, creative stations, nature nooks, the BEA Bike Rodeo and so much more. The Saving Grace Children’s Festival is a popular summer tradition for thousands of children. Proceeds from the event help fund Saving Grace’s domestic violence and sexual assault services supporting communities in Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook County. Witness hot air balloons float across the backdrop of a breathtaking Central Oregon sunrise for a larger than life spectacle the whole family will remember.
