Southridge complex festivities set for Saturday

March 15, 2013 

— The one-year anniversary celebration of the Southridge Sports and Events Complex in Kennewick is set from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The community event kicks off with a performance from the Kennewick High School drumline, followed by performances from local groups, demonstrations, free food while supplies last and Wii games on a big screen.

Everyone over 18 years old will have a chance to win an Apple iPad donated by Affinity at Southridge.

Carousel of Dreams horses will be on display for viewing as the complex is the future site for the historic carousel.

The city of Kennewick also will unveil the first of four outdoor sculptures, titled Happy Human, created by Oregon sculptor C.J Rench.

The large sculptures were commissioned by the Kennewick Arts Commission and depict playful humans.

The one being installed today looks like a child doing a handstand, and is a companion piece to one that will be placed in one of the Southridge area roundabouts, said Terry Walsh, executive director of employee and community relations for the city.

The other three sculptures will be installed at three different roundabouts at Southridge next week.

Those pieces will be installed at the Plaza Way/Ridgeline roundabout, Southridge Boulevard/Ridgeline roundabout and the last one will be positioned in a future roundabout in the area.

The sports complex is off Highway 395 at 2901 Southridge Blvd. in Kennewick.
