Every year the City of Prosser Washington holds the Great Prosser Balloon Rally during the month of September. This year the event will take place the weekend of the 24, Friday, lasting through Sunday. Those of you who are early risers will enjoy the sunrise liftoffs each morning at 6:15, Friday-Sunday. The sunrise launches take place at the Prosser Airport. But if you are not one of those people who enjoy waking up early then come to the Night glow on Saturday evening at Art Fiker Stadium. Gates will open at 5:30pm, you don’t want to miss the pre-glow event featuring Bram Brata and OK2Botay from Tri Cities Washington. During the Night Glow, the Balloons are not flying but they are anchored and illuminated to glow against the night sky. Balloon Pilots from all over the Northwest come out every year for this annual event. This is event is free and a great way to get out with the whole family or maybe just a few friends.
Not only is the Balloon Rally going on but along with it will be the Farmer’s Market on Friday from 8:00am to Noon and the Caren Mercer-Andreason Street Painting Festival. The street painting festival is held in conjunction with the Balloon Rally. Local and regional artists will come to create works of art on the pavement using special pastels. Come and bring a meander around the artists or bring a lawn chair and watch while you listen to a variety of musical entertainment.
