Prosser is a wonderful small town with polite people. You're located in farming country with not a lot to do. If you like wine and beer tasting this is a great place to visit. They have several places to drive to and select uniquely grown local wine and beer. Some farmers occasionally have home business you can come and visit and it's interesting to see a local farm at work. There is some fine dinning but the town is really struggling. I encourage tourists to keep it alive.
If you enjoy meat you'll be okay here. If you're a vegetarian or pescetarian this is not the town for you. You might get lucky and occasionally find a few things but you're in meat country. You'll have to go out of your way to find restaurants geared towards you. No not a lot of places offer a vegi option. What this caused me to do was to pick up my food from a local grocery store and make it at my hotel room. I would have liked to have supported more money at local retailers but just ended up walking away due to no vegi option.
We attended the Prosser Balloon 2018 fiesta and it is very small scale. You'll be able to watch about 30 balloons go up and be awed by their presence. If you've never attended a balloon fiesta you'll enjoy it. This is very small scale compared to the New Mexico balloon fiesta which holds hundreds of balloons and draws thousands. The event is strictly geared towards weather and wind. The slightest bit of wind and it will be canceled. The 2018 was only allowed the Saturday morning event. They do not tell you if the event is canceled until the time of event. So you basically wait all day, show up and find out they canceled it or yes it's on. Two of three days were canceled. We strictly came over for the event and only saw one day of balloons going up. The other two days were canceled due to wind.
The arts and craft fair was interesting. Some unique crafts to look at offered by local merchants. Dozens of small farm stands with fresh produce.
Would recommend to visit Prosser, WA but you don't really need more than 2-3 days here.
