The public is invited to celebrate the grand opening of the new amphitheater from 2 to 4 p.m. March 3. There will be light refreshments, giveaways and circus-style entertainment, including stilt walkers, balancing acrobats, dancers and jugglers performing a variety of acts. A graded hill landscape will allow visitors to view the performances in a casual outdoor atmosphere. Don't forget to bring your lawn chairs.
