This is the weekend when our skies will be dotted with color and the familiar "wooosh!" of hot air balloons could wake you up early in the morning. The 8th Annual Balloons over Bend begins today and runs through Sunday at the Old Mill District. Event Organizer Sandy Henderson says this year it's got a brand new look and purpose: “We moved the date from late May and June to the middle of July to get some better weather. But we've also merged with saving grace children's festival, which we're really excited about. We think Saving Grace does an amazing job in the community and delighted to be working with them on an even bigger and better event in Bend." Henderson says there will be seven piloted balloons that will be flying around the area on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings shortly after 6:00 a.m., and they are planning a "Night Glow" Saturday night at dusk. Henderson says they expect several thousands people to attend events at the Old Mill.
