One of my family's favorite things to do in Prosser is sadly getting canceled for 2020 due to COVID-19.

The weekend of September 25th, 26th, and 27th was supposed to be awesome with the high-flying balloons in the air over Prosser but the Great Prosser Balloon Rally canceled the show for 2020.

The balloons usually fly in the morning and then a nighttime program at the football field follows.

It looks like neither will happen this year but the festival is hoping to have some virtual video events.

The Great Prosser Balloon Rally posted this statement on their Facebook page:

After careful consideration and much thought, the Great Prosser Balloon Rally Committee has made the decision to cancel the event for 2020. In the current unsure and ever-changing environment, we felt it was prudent and the safest choice to cancel the event at this time.

We are extremely disappointed for this year, but remain optimistic for 2021. This year has been challenging for ballooning events all over, with many being canceled. We hope that all of our amazing supporters will stay with us as we look forward to making next year's event a great experience!

We are hoping to host some virtual events during the September 25th weekend, that will highlight ballooning, our pilots and sponsors. So keep on the lookout for more information about any virtual rally opportunities.

We send our best wishes that everyone stays safe and healthy, and look forward to seeing all of you in 2021!

It's a bummer but at least we have 2021 to look forward to. You can check out more details on the cancellation here.
