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