YAKIMA, Wash. — The Yakima Parks and Recreation Commission wants to hear what residents think about a requested beer and wine garden for the Yakima Folklife Festival in July.
In a letter requesting the city’s permission, Yakima Folklife Festival President Don Eastridge said that since the festival does not charge admission, organizers are looking for new revenue sources, according to a news release from the city of Yakima.
People can comment at the commission’s next meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Yakima City Hall, 129 N. Second St., Yakima. The meeting will be aired live on Y-PAC, Charter Cable channel 22.
The Yakima Folklife Festival has been held at Franklin Park for 29 years, and includes downtown Yakima venues.
