Exciting news to share. Steve and I were contacted today about assisting with the newest Sequim festival coming to our growing valley… First Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival. This high-flying event is going to be located right outside our back door. We are hoping to help host a hospitality suite or simply help facilitate emergency access to the field. Stop by and say hi… we’d be happy to answer any of your questions about Sequim and if you are moving here, we can help you with that too! Steve and I are native Sequimites and very knowledgeable about the Sequim area.
Here are the first two tips for “Why Sequim?”:
1. The Weather: Sequim is in the “Rain Shadow” of the Olympic Mountains. It receives less rain than most of California – 17″ a year, less than half of what Seattle receives.
2. The Wind & Rain on 9/1-2-3: Researching the wind on September 1, 2 & 3 for the last 31 years, out of those 93 days it has only rained twice and had wind over 10 mph twice during the morning times when balloons fly. So the odds are GREAT that balloons will fly.
