What's Happening in Wine Country
Bill's Berry

    If you think Prosser is all about wine, then think again.  Starting in March some of the best produce in the Nation is harvested in the lower Yakima Valley.  We are now in the middle of cherries and soon apricots.  The field vegetables will also soon be available.  You can ride the hay wagon out to pick your own cherries and blueberries and then picnic and BBQ back at Bill's Berry Farm while the kids play on their playground or visit their petting zoo.  The Thunder Boats are coming to Columbia Park just 30 short miles from Wine Country RV Park and the Experimental Aircraft Association is holding their annual fly-in at the Prosser airport all in the wonderful sunshine of Eastern Washington

The Thunder Boats are coming

     HydroplaneEvery year the Tri Cities Water Follies brings the Unlimitied Hydroplanes to Columbia Park.  This great family event will see the Thunder boats going over 150 mph. This show is not just about hydroplane racing.  If your tired of watching the boats, take in a few hours of the great airshow. 
     Wine Country RV Park is just 30 miles west of Columbia Park and gets you away from the crowds for a little peace and quiet.  Don't miss the 46th running of the Columbia Cup Hydroplane races on July 29th - 31st.

Come for a Great Weekend in Prosser

  July 16P51-17th brings the South Central Washington Experimental Aircraft Association fly-in to Prosser.  These flyers will bring a collection of aircraft ranging from refurbished older military planes to exotic home builts capable of acrobatics.  If you haven't been to an airshow this mini version is entertaining and can be exciting.  Take a look at this video of one of their planes making a belly landing.   This is the same weekend that Prosser sees the "Art Walk and Wine Gala" and the "Horse Heaven Hills Trail Ride".  Come see us for a warm exciting weekend in Wine Country.
