|First Performance May 20th|
A new venue is set to open this May in Central West Virginia featuring well-known national and regional performers.
The Mountain Lakes amphitheater, the latest venture of Skidmore Development, is presently in the final stage of construction with opening day scheduled to be on May 20th featuring country legend, John Anderson.
Already on the calendar is a variety of nationally known performers including a two day Mountain Lakes Bluegrass Festival with six bluegrass bands including Nothin' Fancy, a southern gospel night featuring The Crabb Family and Heart Cry and a vintage Rock & Roll/Cruise-In Weekend, featuring Mike Albert and the Big E Band as well as Phil Dirt and the Dozers.
Many more concerts and events are planned for the summer 2006 season.
Tickets will be available for purchase on-line at www.mountainlakesmusic.com
Organizations will be able to rent Mountain Lakes Amphitheater for activities such as event performances, awards banquets, theater productions and more.
The new facility will also feature a great natural setting, ample parking, patio, clean restrooms and comfortable reserved stadium seating.
The Mountain Lakes Amphitheater is located adjacent to the new Flatwoods, RV Park which is quickly becoming one of the premier camping parks in West Virginia.
The park features asphalt roads, full services, plenty of shade, access to swimming pools and is located next to the Flatwoods Days Inn and Convention Center.
In addition, the Flatwoods Factory Outlet Stores has recently expanded and is now home to over 25 stores.
"This amphitheater is a natural extension to the Flatwoods exit. It just provides one more reason to make Braxton County a destination," says John Skidmore.
"Our goal from the beginning has been to create a comfortable environment for our guests. We have stadium seating with armrests and built in cup holders, wide easy access aisles and an outdoor fireplace located on our inviting patio. Guests will surely enjoy their experience," concludes Skidmore.
