These acts always bring their own stage, so why does our government need to spend $3M to help out big money show biz?

Well Ryan, it is NOT government money, it is from the BP settlement. It is “spend it or lose it”.
The thought is, having a large permanent stage will help draw acts to our area which in turn will bring in more visitors especially during the slower part of the season.

I’m all for anything that will help bring in more people to PCB

If it is BP’s money funding this. Then why are they charging for tickets? PCB did not loose any money during the season.

How do you figure that James? Tourism was way down because of the oil spill which in turn effects the bed tax that goes to the TDC. For example our rental income this year is up 38% over last.
Why would they not charge for tickets? Even the so called free ones to the tourists are not free, the condos, motels, management companies etc that are giving them to guests are being charged, I believe, $25.00 a ticket.

Tourism in 2010 was down due to “News” about the BP Oil Spill not due to the beaches of Panama City being ruined.
(I do not believe this is still having to be discussed)
GreggT, you are correct however it does affect the “Bed Tax” greatly anytime there is a drop in renters.
The building of the new permanent stage will be a great asset to PCB….. not only will it draw more performing groups it will lessen the load of set-up & tear-down. There are many many possibilities for use of this new stage….. not only for music but, the possibility of plays and children’s shows. Why not install a screen to show park-side movies?
James, Now you know “really” that no musicians and or bands will perform to a crowd for free. lol lol
I look forward to seeing the new stage being built & bringing in funds for PCB tourism.
Thank you,
