The site sat unused for two years while the county pondered what to do with it. A study said it would cost $3.5 million to renovate, and supporters feared it could take years to raise enough money for the amphitheater to reopen.
But concerned citizens formed the Lubber Run Amphitheater Foundation and worked with the county to come up with another plan. They agreed on a set of improvements that would only cost around $100,000. Some of the upgrades include a new stage, new lighting and the addition of handicap accessible parking spaces.
Tonight’s concert by Mary Ann Redmond is the first in a series of summer events at the site. It is free and begins at 8pm. To encourage you to brave the heat, free cookies and fans are promised. Click here for the full list of events at Lubber Run Amphitheater.
