Summer Fun in Bend, Oregon 2017

Balloons Over Bend

Cheri’s little munchkin at Balloons Over Bend a few years ago.

We’ve had several days in a row of temps in the 80’s and we are giddy about it! In case you hadn’t heard, we had an unusually harsh winter. All this sunshine has us thinking about summertime in Bend. We’ve rounded up a list of festivals, concerts, and events taking place this summer in and around Bend. We may have missed a few but this is certainly enough to keep you busy!
