The City of Lewiston will conduct a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the completion of its new amphitheater in Simard Payne Memorial Park on Friday, June 24 at 4:30 p.m. Following the ribbon cutting, there will be a brief program featuring performances by Ninth Tone Voice Studios, L-A Community Little Theatre, and the Maine Music Society. The event is free and open to the public. The park is located at 46 Beech Street.
Partly funded by a $900,000 Economic Development Initiative grant, the amphitheater was a recommendation of Lewiston’s 2012 Riverfront Island Master Plan, reflecting the community’s desire to see the riverfront utilized to its fullest potential, including recreational uses.
