Stage to be built for Strawberry Festival

A permanent stage will be constructed at the Strawberry Festival grounds in time for the 1991 event that will run from Feb. 28 through March 10. The festival's theme this year is "Your Ticket to Fun." Located where the temporary stage was set up, the new building will feature an elevated stage 100 feet wide and 60 feet deep. Included in the design will be dressing and waiting areas for the performers. There also will be a souvenir sales area.

The rear and sides of the stage will be closed in to protect performers from wind and rain. A roof and front canopy also will give protection nstorms.

Speaker banks and lighting will be suspended from the overhang, enlarging the reserved seating area.

Case Construction Co. of Plant City will be the general contractor for this project.
