Lacombe Performing Arts Centre to hold grand opening next weekend

The grand opening of the Lacombe Performing Arts Centre is just around the corner.

On Sept. 27-28, during Culture and Harvest Fest, the centre, located at 5227 Calgary Edmonton Trail, will officially open its doors to the public.

“Our committee, along side Lacombe’s citizens and business owners, have been working for over a year to transform this space into a performance space for our community,” said Brittany Mulder, Lacombe Performing Arts Centre vice-president.

On Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. there will be a Central Alberta Film Festival screening, where a selection of local short films will be shown.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held Sept. 28 at 11 a.m. There will be activities and entertainment throughout the day, including dancing, art and a magician.

Then at 7 p.m. the centre will host a free Jamie Woodfin concert – people are encouraged to get tickets because seating is limited.
