PHOTOS: Alexander City Jazz Fest
The coronavirus and social distancing have kept some away from the 30th annual Alexander City Jazz Fest but those who did venture to Strand Park Friday were entertained.
The AMP is an open-air site, located on the top of one of the rolling hills, high above the shores of Lake Martin. The many acres of open fields surrounding the amphitheater have a rolling topography, including several small streams, and are bordered by the lake and dense woods. The entire area provides a panoramic view of the Big Kowaliga Basin.
As people sit on blankets or lawn chairs to enjoy events, they look down on a 60'x40' state-of-the-art stage, with a panoramic view of Lake Martin as a backdrop. In addition, we have improved road access and parking areas, which are near and offer easy access, day or night. The parking areas are dirt/gravel and grass. There are two restrooms with handicap access. Security is provided to promote and maintain a wholesome family atmosphere.
