Water Follies Tickets Selling Well

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- A year after the Water Follies nearly ran dry, organizers say they're ahead of schedule on this year's ticket sales.

Organizers tell KNDU they expect about 60,000 people on the river shore in a few weeks.

The races almost didn't happen last year because of funding problems.

This year is different.  Organizers started out with a title sponsor in Lamb Weston.

Now they say most of the reserved tents and RV areas are already full, and Wednesday, individual general admission tickets went on sale at area Albertson's stores and the Water Follies offices Kennewick.

"We got kind of a late start last year and people I think were kind of sitting back and assessing the situation.   This year we have an exciting event.   We have the jets coming in the Hapo Over-the-River Air Show.   We have the lights coming back," said Kathy Powell with Water Follies.

The races are scheduled for the last weekend of the July.  That's the July 25-27. 

If you want tickets, you can pick them up at any area Albertson's store.
