The skies come alive this weekend in Bend. The Balloons Over Bend event kicks off Friday morning and finishes on Sunday.
Balloons will launch at sunrise at R.E. Jewell Elementary School each day. Five pilots will take to the sky, and the event is free for anyone to watch.
These launches aren’t the only events going on.
Friday hosts the Balloon Blast Kids Race and Bend Night Glow Celebration at Central Oregon Community College. Saturday will see the return of the Redmond Night Glow. Live music, food vendors, and a marketplace. You won’t want to miss it.
