Watch the skies come alive!
This will be a weekend to remember with balloon launches each day at dawn. Head down to the Night Glow for an evening of music, food and glow-in-the-dark balloons. Take the kids to the Balloon Blast race for a chance to stack up some points in our Kid’s Rock the Races series!

Balloon launches at sunrise
Balloons will launch each day throughout the weekend. The balloon launches are free to anyone to observe. Just make sure you wake up early enough to greet the giant balloons as they float up into the sky.
The balloons will start setting up at sunrise (about 6am), with an estimated launch time of 6:45-7am (depending on weather). We suggest showing up around 6:15am to grab a spot, and to ensure you don’t miss the launch.
For the third year we are merging the Redmond Chamber with Balloons Over Bend to bring the night glow to Redmond!
This event will feature a few of Central Oregon’s favorite food trucks, breweries, live music, and all of the bacon your heart desires. At sundown, witness the picturesque hot air balloons as they illuminate the Fairgrounds. This will be an event to remember so bring the kids for a day at the park while you enjoy the festivities.
