PROSSER, WA - The 26th annual Great Prosser Balloon Rally started off Friday. There are 20 different hot air balloons participating this year. Pilots came in from all over the pacific northwest to fly for the balloon.

NBC Right Now asked one pilot about what keeps her in the air after 15 years of flying. Hot air balloon pilot Carmen Blakey said "It's something you just want to do, it's kind of like a drive you want to fly, It's a freedom."

The rally continues Saturday and Sunday morning at dawn and all flights are followed by the harvest festival in downtown Prosser.

Also at Art Fiker Stadium a night glow with the balloons is happening at sunset Saturday evening.
