Tigard Festival of Balloons
It’s always a treat to go out with friends, regardless of the event. This evening, the excuse was the Tigard Festival of Balloons with Ann, Terri & Allyson.
Four Balloons fired up within the confines of the festival booths selling elephant ears, funnel cakes, apparel from Peru, and many other things. Carnival rides also lit up the night. Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts provided the roots-of-rock soundtrack, as they did the last time I visited, in the 1990s, when people used film in cameras. Tonight, dozens of people with digital cameras jockeyed for the good shots.
For anyone looking to go next year, your ticket is good for both days. Some people hang out all day to enjoy the festivities. $5 parking at the high school helps support the school.
