Many Enjoy States Day Parade in Prosser

Posted: Updated:

PROSSER, Wash. - Dozens hit the streets of Prosser Monday for the 88th annual States Day Parade and Celebration.

The parade began at ten a.m. and made its way to city park. States Day is an annual event that aims to unify people that come from different states.

After the parade, people gathered in city park for food, music, and carnival rides.

"I think its biggest event we have or the one that has the most meaning we have a lot of really great events like the great balloon rally lots of wine events but this one is very nice because its a sentimental gathering of friends," said States Day Volunteer Lois Lyon.

As part of the festivities people are encouraged to add their state of birth to a list and wear a badge to show off what state they're from.
