Water Follies Clean Up In Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The excitement of 47th Annual Water Follies left its mark on Columbia Park this weekend.

Early this morning, crews began emptying hundreds of dumpsters, garbage cans and recylcling bins, while volunteers also began tearing down tents, bleachers and the almost 7 miles of fencing.

Water Follies Board Member Todd Blackman says their cleanup crews waste no time getting started, "Well you know we worked last night til dark and we started again early this morning, around 7 o'clock and I hope to be out of the park before it gets good and hot."

People with metal detectors also showed up looking for lost items.

If you believe you lost some valuables at the event this weekend, contact the Water Follies office.
