Beautiful hot air balloons will fill the skies above Prosser this weekend during the Great Prosser Balloon Rally (weather permitting)

This annual event kicks off Friday, September 27th in the quaint little town of Prosser Washington just 30 miles west of Tri-Cities.

Here's the scoop:

Hot Air Balloons take to the sky at The Great Prosser Balloon Rally. The balloons are scheduled to launch at sunrise from the Prosser Washington Airport (111 Nunn Road). Launches are WEATHER PERMITTING, depending upon rain and wind. We will post on our Facebook the status of launches each morning.

Balloon Pilots from all over the Northwestern United States will join in Prosser, Washington to participate in the Great Prosser Balloon Rally. Spectators are encouraged to arrive early (about 6:15 am) at the Prosser Airport to watch the pilots prepare the giant balloons. Some lucky spectators are even asked to assist the balloon pilots inflate, chase, and recover the Hot-Air-Balloons. Don't forget your camera! You too may be able to capture a beautiful photo.

THERE ARE NO BALLOON RIDES FOR THE PUBLIC OR EVENT ATTENDEES.

PLEASE, NO PETS, SMOKING OR DRONES ARE PERMITTED AT THE EVENT.
