It looks like the Walla Walla Balloon Stampede has dates set for this fall and I'm one of those excited that the Stampede is coming back. The dates are October 13th - 17th. 

A few years back I got a chance to go up in a balloon and had an awesome time. I snapped a bunch of photos from the experience and here are my photos from my flight.

This year will be the 46th annual Walla Walla Balloon Stampede. Stampede week begins with Kid's Day on Oct. 13th.

Kids get to come down to Howard Tietan Park in Walla Walla and get a tether ride in a balloon. Nite Glow is also scheduled for October 15th where the balloons are inflated at night at dusk and the balloons are lit up from the inside.

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
