Kennewick’s Eastgate Park will be closed until Aug. 2 as part of a Christian music festival at the Benton Franklin Fairgrounds.
Creation Festival Northwest has reserved the park, located next to the fairgrounds and Eastgate Elementary School on 10th Avenue, for its activities from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., a city of Kenenwick release said.
Two Rivers Park along the Columbia River in Finley will also be closed during the festival as it will be used as a campsite for volunteers.
Festival organizers distributed fliers in the neighborhoods near the parks informing residents of the closures. The festival is expected to bring 15,000 to 20,000 people to the area.
