Saturday’s bluegrass prize pool swells
A $500 donation from Friends of Marion County Lake will increase the prize pool for this week’s open stage contest at Bluegrass at the Lake.
Instead of $100, the best performance will earn $300. Second place will net $200; third, $100. The group hopes increased prizes will attract more musicians to the open stage from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday.
The annual event will be at the beach area at Marion County Park and Lake.
The Kansas Bluegrass Association Treblemakers will perform from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, and the Alfred Packer Memorial String Band will play from 8 to 10 p.m. An open stage without prizes will be from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday.
