Balloons Over Bend - A Fabulous Bend Tradition

Balloons Over Bend

Balloons Over Bend has been a Bend tradition for many years. The event encompasses a weekend of beautiful hot air Balloons ascending over Central Oregon.

At this morning's launch at Jewell Elementary in Bend,  a large crowd of people, many of which look like they just rolled out of bed, arrived at the school to watch a spectacular sight amidst a beautiful sunrise and with the moon still high overhead.  Along with Bob Shaw from Z21, people of all ages including wide eyed children, and some very excited passengers watched and marveled as 6 beautiful hot air balloons prepped for flight.  After a test balloon indicated near perfect conditions for liftoff, one by one each captivating balloon, pilot, and passengers lifted to the sky toward the rising sun amongst the “oohs” and “aahs” from the crowd.  And rest assured, dozens of photographers memorialized the event. 

The fun continues tonight with the magic of Nightglow at Riverbend Park and tomorrow evening at Sunriver Resort.  And Jewell will continue to host additional sunrise launches Saturday and Sunday.
