Last-minute vacations promise fun and spontaneity for travelers who can pack up and go. (You can even snag some special rates on last-second rentals.) But skipping the planning stage means you may miss out on some activities and events that sell out in advance. Luckily, the community of Sisters has tons of seasonal events that are open to the public and easy to attend. If you’re considering a last-minute trip to Central Oregon, add these summer events to your itinerary for a vacation you’ll want to savor more slowly.
