The NW Art & Air may be the best little late summer festival around: Watch hot air balloons ascend in early dawn flights Friday, Saturday and Sunday and illuminate the night sky during the magical night glow event, Friday 23rd (weather permitting). Friday and Saturday Timber Linn Park will come alive with music, artists, a vintage car show, family activities and food from a variety of vendors. Musical artists (featuring this year’s headliner Rick Springfield) will give evening performances. For the adults, there’s a wine and microbrew garden. The festival is free, but parking is $5. The hours and schedule are different each day. Visit website for more information and complete schedule.
