Some Business predict project will bring more business

The city of Beaver Dam and its tourism commission recently broke ground on a one million dollar outdoor amphitheater. Some businesses there think the venue will be great for new business.

The OC Café in Beaver Dam has been serving the community home style cooking for five years. Owner Rodney York sees a lot of new faces walking in when a big event is held in the county. "Anytime an event happens in Ohio County we are usually impacted positively by it especially the new ball park. Anytime there is a bunch of ball games in town our business grows from it," said York. 

York and several other Ohio County business owners are predicting business will grow even more after a new project is completed. The city of Beaver Dam recently broke ground on a amphitheater at Beaver Dam Park. Right now crews are building the foundation for the structure. Hoarder's Headquarters owner Holly Abnew says the amphitheater will bring more excitement to the community when it's finished. Los Mexicanos Restaurante Owner Deidra Roman says she is extremely excited for the venue to be completed. She says it will bring people from outside the county to Beaver Dam.York thinks the amphitheater will be a great way to promote businesses to people visiting the community. "They're in town for another event. They'll mosey around, look around, see other things that they may come revisit again once they're on a day off or something else," said York.

The city hopes to have the amphitheater finished in September and will host a grand opening concert on October 4th with country music artists Lonestar and Joe Diffie as the headliners.
