Festival or Balloons begins Friday

The Festival begins June 24 and continues through Sunday

Set your alarm, because the Tigard Festival of Balloons begins bright and early tomorrow morning.

All weekend long Tigard will be home to 17 large hot air balloons, which take to the sky at sunrise each morning (weather permitting) and travel delicately all over town.

The Times will have photos and stories from the festival next week, but in the meantime, we've posted some photos and videos from previous years of the festival's 26 year history, as well as a link to an article we wrote last year about the youngest pilots at the festival, 8-year-old Grace
