The One Of A Kind Festival You Won’t Find Anywhere But The Portland Area
There are so many unique festivals in and around Portland, that you may never have known about Festival of Balloons in Tigard, that has been going strong for 30 years. This three-day event is filled with hot air balloons and so much more.
This year, the fun community event will take place from June 23rd through 25th in Tigard's Cook Park.
You'll want to get out early to see the balloons launch in the morning and start off the day in a perfect way.
The balloons dotting the sky is truly a wonderful sight to take in, and seeing so many balloons in one place is one of the most majestic sights of the festival.
Along with balloons, there are plenty of food, craft and business vendors to shop back on the ground.
There are rides, a Twilight Run, a soccer tournament, and a Festival of Cars that take place during the festival. But one of the biggest draws is the adult rib eating contest...
And the kids can get in on the fun too with the epic blackberry pie eating contest.
The carnival is sure to excite the whole family with tons of rides that will keep everyone busy all weekend.
At night, the balloons light up for attendees to enjoy, and live music will be played on the main stage on Friday and Saturday nights.
Rogue Ales will have a beer garden and the rides will be open until 11 pm to soak up the fun.
If you want to enjoy a unique event with your whole family, this is one festival that you simply must attend. Mark your calendar and be sure to buy pre-sale tickets for $5 online.
