The Great Prosser Balloon Rally
Sept 22-24, 2023
Join us for sunrise launches at Prosser Airport (weather permitting). Stay tuned to our social media pages for any changes or modifications to the event! We hope to see you and balloons in the sky in September!
1. What time are the balloons in the air?
They take off Fri, Sat & Sun morning (weather permitting) around 7-8am but we recommend getting there around 6:30am so you can watch the whole process from beginning to end. They can fly anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour and a half.
2. Where do the balloons land?
All over the Prosser area! The pilots go with the wind and where ever the wind blows is where they will land.
3. What time is Night Glow?
Night Glow gates open at 6:00pm and the balloons will start glowing at around 7:15pm. (Weather permitting) of course!
4. How do I get a balloon ride?
Rides are NOT available for purchase, only rides given are for event sponsors. However, we do have a raffle for one individual to ride during the Sunday morning launch (weather permitting). Tickets can be purchased for $1.00 at the memorabilia stand on the airfield or at the memorabilia stand downtown during the Harvest Festival. The raffle will be drawn at the beginning of the night glow event. If your business would like to sponsor for future years, please message us and we add you to our contact list.
5. Is there an admission fee?
This is a FREE event! We have no admission fees to night glow or the morning launches. Feel free to come out and take photos and see the gorgeous hot air balloons. There is a donation box available at the memorabilia stand if you would like to support next year’s rally. All donations are greatly appreciated!
6. Where do the balloons launch from?
The Prosser Airport, 111 Nunn Road, Prosser, WA 99350.
