Hempfield is kicking off its Summer Concert Series with the grand opening of its new amphitheater this weekend.

Normally filled with kids playing sports and families enjoying the walking trail and pavilions, Hempfield Park will be home to bands, food trucks and lawn chairs.

Work on the Hempfield Smail Auto Group Amphitheater cost $382,000. On Saturday, East Coast Turnaround, a five-person band, and Switch, a five-piece band that plays a range of music from dance and pop to rock and country, are set to perform after township supervisors host a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The ceremony will start at 4 p.m., and bands will start performing at 5 p.m.

Speal’s on Wheels, a food truck that serves wraps and fries, will be available Saturday.

Other concerts are slated for throughout the summer, with performances with Jeff Jimerson, who sings the National Anthem at Pittsburgh Penguins games, and Aubrey Burchell, who competed on American Idol last year.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
