DeKalb County officials will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for an amphitheater, walking trails, gardens and open meadows at Rainbow Park on Monday, July 1, at 10 a.m., 3171 Rainbow Park Drive, Decatur.

The new amphitheater will seat up to 1,000 people and will be an open-air venue for DeKalb residents and visitors to enjoy a variety of live music performances, movies in the park and other county-sponsored events.

David Manuel, executive director of the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center in DeKalb County, said is excited about the new amphitheater as an addition to the arts in DeKalb.

“This amphitheater is an opportunity to expand our offerings to the community and to continue to showcase and attract the best talent for our county,” said Manuel.

The public is invited to join DeKalb’s Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs, park staff and other county officials at the ceremony. Attendees also will learn more about upcoming events and volunteer opportunities. There also will be a special performance by Stepp Stewart’s Motown Revue.

    Finally. At one point,I thought that the citizens of the immediate South DeKalb County area would be shafted like the supposed ” Atlanta Sports City” project. I could be wrong, but I’m not feeling it and still think it’s a sham.

    My only concern about the amphitheater is the close proximity to people’s homes,otherwise..Im happy about it. I’ve always wanted one like Wolf Creek,Lakewood( I forgot the new name of it) and the one in Chastain Park.Though it may not be as large as those facilities, I’ll take it.

    I don’t live that far from Rainbow Park/ Porter Sanford Arts Center. I’m looking forward to the day where maybe ..just maybe( with crossed fingers)
    ..Ill get to see Whodini or Spyra Gyro play in there.
