Riverwalk ampitheater ground broken

Under a cloudy sky, Mayor Jake Day, joined by U.S. Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, dug shovels into a pile of dirt and tossed it into the air on Friday, officially breaking ground for the new Riverwalk Amphitheater.

“This is an incredible moment. Give your mayor thanks,” a beaming Cardin said, leading applause for Day, who stood with others involved in the project.

“This is a great moment. The amphitheater will be incredible for the Riverwalk. It will add to the quality here. I can see where the mayor’s architectural background comes into play here. You get a lot of service out of your mayor,” Cardin said, looking at renderings of the structure.

Van Hollen praised Day’s vision to revitalize the Riverwalk area with the outdoor theater.
