Fireworks crew members survey Walla Walla Park on Monday to choose a location for shooting off this year's Fourth of July display. The Columbia River is running high, forcing them to set up deeper in the park. The Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail will be detoured around the area Friday through Monday.

WENATCHEE — The Walla Walla Point Park island is underwater, which means a move for the Wenatchee Valley 4th of July fireworks launch site.

The site is still in the park but is now between the bridge to the island and the sculpture “Coyote Leads the Salmon up the River,” according to the event’s head pyrotechnician, Kylee Boggs. She said the fireworks will still be launched above the river to ensure safety.
