Prosser is a great small town, with a friendly welcoming community! Wine industry is growing rapidly, area is great, agriculture all around.
Prosser Washington is a nice friendly town, it is the heart of the wine country with many local wineries. Everywhere that you go to visit in this town, everyone is nice and friendly, it is like no strangers in this town. Prosser has grown over the years, with the many different wineries tourist can experience the fun. Every August Prosser has the balloon rally. It attracts many tourist from different states to the balloon rally. There have been as many as 15 or more hot air balloons up at one time. It is beautiful how they can land on the Yakima river. The reflection is beautiful.
