KENNEWICK, Wash. - The 10th annual Columbia River Cowboy Gathering & Music Festival is coming up this weekend.
The three day festival celebrates the western way of life through music, poetry, performances and merchandise.

"Clover Island Inn," said festival director, Budd Massengale, "has always, since the day one when we started this, has stepped up to the plate. Without them we wouldn't be able to do this at the price that we can, and that's because of their involvement, so we really appreciate it."
