When will performances begin at the new amphitheater in Ethel Lee Tracy Park?
Construction of the amphitheater is complete and "Evenings at the Amphitheater" are scheduled this spring and summer.
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.
"Evenings at the Amphitheater" performances will be held during the spring and summer months. The dates are March 21, April 26, May 23, June 20 and Aug. 22. Information about the performances on these dates will be forthcoming.
The facility will be available to rent for $100 a day, which includes the amphitheater and the adjacent pavilion. Reservations are available by calling Victoria Parks and Recreation at 361-485-3200.
Is there a commercial recycling program available to businesses in Victoria?
Response has been very positive to the residential curbside recycling program that the city of Victoria implemented last year, and businesses within the city limits also have an opportunity to participate in a commercial recycling program.
Please note that the commercial recycling program is being offered now through Waste Management Inc. - not by the city of Victoria. This is an optional service.
Businesses who would like to participate in the commercial recycling program should contact Waste Management at 361-578-3866 to set up commercial recycling service for their business. Cost for the service depends on the size of the recycling container as well as volume. Businesses can reduce the size of their garbage container to accommodate the amount of recycling materials they anticipate.
Acceptable items include cardboard, paper and some types of plastics. Commercial recycling is picked up every Friday. For a complete list of items accepted through the commercial recycling program and for more information about the service, call Waste Management at 361-578-3866.
