An Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration!
The Prosser Chamber of Commerce invites you to join them for an Old-Fashioned 4th of July Celebration!
This year the festivities begin on July 2nd and 3rd with the return of the Mini Hydroplane races on the Yakima River. Held by the Straight Line Outboard Racing Association the races will feature a series of 'shoot outs' in a double elimination bracket for speed records throughout the day Saturday and Sunday.
Second Year Racin' On the River
Last year was the first year since July 1972 that Rusty Burnett, who was a Prosser resident and owner of Prosser Auto Parts, brought boat races to the Yakima River at Crawford Park.
Now, in 2016 the mini-hydro's will be back to Prosser for the Old Fashioned Fourth of July celebration. The mini hydroplanes range in size form 9'5" to 14'.
Senior Housing Project Proposed
Catholic Charities Housing Service has applied with the City of Prosser to build a 61-unit senior housing unit at 415 Petra Avenue in Prosser.
The city determined the project is consistent with development regulations and the Comprehensive Plan. "They need a place to be, we have provided low income housing, farm workers housing, but none for people of retirement age and this is for affordable housing for our aging population," said Steve Zetz, City Planner.
John Doe and His Rock N Roll Band
