  • Sacramento leaders want to renovate historic Land Park amphitheater

    Organizers held a fundraiser Thursday evening at Fairytale Town to spark attention for renovating the amphitheater built as a Works Progress Administration project during the Depression. They raised about $50,000 and their goal is $250,000 by the end of the summer to cover design costs for a major renovation. Their eventual target is $2.5 million to pay for restrooms, better seating, improved sound and lighting systems and dressing rooms for performers. Video by Ryan Lillis, The Sacramento Bee.
