Park-goers blackout beach with heavy drinking
Thanks to an overwhelming community response - the Illia Dunes stands a shot at re-opening in time to enjoy what's left of the nice weather this year.
Officials closed the area Monday - after irresponsible visitors trashed the place over the weekend.
While they're happy that more than 3-thousand of you chose to spend your free time enjoying some of the best the Snake River shoreline has to offer - they're less than pleased with the massive amounts of broken beer bottles, cans and garbage thrown in the water and all over the beach.
The closure can't officially be uplifted until water contamination tests check back clean - but you can pitch in to clear the beach itself this weekend.
