PASCO — Just a few weeks after canceling the annual hydroplane races here, Water Follies officials have announced the races are back on.
The hydroplane races will take place July 23-25 on the Columbia River, upstream from the Blue Bridge connecting Pasco and Kennewick.
The race staging area will once again be Columbia Park in Kennewick. Access to the park will be by ticket only.
The decision to resume racing follows an announcement by Gov. Jay Inslee that the state should be fully open by June 30 as the coronavirus scare winds down and related mandates are lifted.
