People Flock Downtown For Yakima Blues and Local Brews

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA. -- People came downtown to enjoy Yakima Blues and Local Brews Saturday afternoon.

Saturday was the second day of the festival that included six bands and nine different local beers and wines. The City of Yakima put on the event to promote the downtown area.

"I think more than anything we want to create a vibrant downtown," Economic Developer Sean Hawkins said. "Over the course of a year we want to have something going on every weekend. It brings people downtown but most importantly, it's just fun."

The city says with a new plaza like the one planned in the Downtown Master Plan, it would be easier to host public concerts like this one.
