Blue clear skies will hopefully be the backdrop for balloons so colorful they are total eye candy! The Walla Walla Balloon Stampede will be Wednesday thru Sunday (Oct. 17-21). Morning winds have been an issue the last couple of years, so how about some afternoon flights as a back up? Great idea! Get the story HERE. Did you know that about 1000 kids got to fly in a balloon last year? It was tethered, but still a great flight experience! They will do that again on Wednesday morning at 7:15 during "Billy Blastvalve's Kids Day!" Visit the official website of the Walla Walla Balloon Stampede for details on events, parking, merchandise and balloon rides.
