Tri-City Water Follies: Day 3

Monday, July 27, 2009by  WALLY Team

It's the final day of the Tri-City Water Follies and Anna, Peter and I are all a bit sad to see this exciting, exhilarating event come to a close. We had such a wonderful time in Kennewick, WA and thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the friendly locals at the PEMCO booth. 


It's hard to say what we loved most about our trip across the state, but we thought we would give you a taste of the fun times we've had. So without further ado, here are the PEMCO Brand Ambassador's Top Ten Greatest Moments at the Tri-City Water Follies:


Water follies activity


  1.     Watching the F-16 during the air show perform the 'muscle climb' and zoom vertically from a mere 500 ft to 15,000 ft in just seconds;

  2. Meeting friendly Tri-City PEMCO policyholders and introducing them to our WALLY1 van;

  3. Helping enthusiastic kids create colorful signs to cheer on their favorite racers;

  4. Waving at trendy golf cart commuters;

  5. Experiencing not one, but two drive-by spray bottle mistings by a 'Tri-City Tan Muscle Man';

  6. People-watching at the PEMCO booth and noting the unique fashions worn by fans: inflatable hydro hats, Water Hydroplane Activitiesvibrantly colorful bathing suits, mullets, and, of course, racing attire;

  7. Watching the dramatic PEMCO Insurance Heat 2A where J. Michael Kelly flipped his Graham Trucking hydroplane and Steve David of 'Oh Boy! Oberto' sealed his victory;

  8. Observing the slow reddening of skin as spectators reclined on the shore of the Columbia River;

  9. Enjoying delicious and refreshing sno-cones; and

  10. Surviving the scorching heat completely sunburn free!
