the newly renovated Elmwood Park. But tomorrow night is it's big, official debut, with the Sheryl Crow concert. WDBJ7's David Kaplan caught up with the many people making it happen today. He's live in Elmwood Park this evneing. This show sold out in just hours, so people are definitely excited. The logistics of having a big national act in a brand new, open-park are a bit challenging. But it's one city officials are taking in stride. It's going to be a great show. It's going to be a great show. Let's call the festivals that have been here so far; Local Colors, Festival in the Park, etcetera, the appetizers. Because there's no doubt, for Roanoke City officials, Sheryl Crow is the main course. It's going to be kind of fun to see this place filled and show it off. Roanoke Parks and Recreation head Steve Bushor has spent months planning for tomorrow night. Today, the golf carts were moving, the cherry pickers were rising, and the finishing touches on the city's end were wrapping up. Brian Townsend, Assistant City Manager It'll be a great learning experience but we hope for the people who come, a great entertainment experience as well. City officials feel they've covered most of their bases, even preparing for the things they haven't prepared for. Assistant City Manager Brian Townsend says.... Brian Townsend, Assistant City Manager We're ready. i think once we see tomorrow and people start arriving, we'll have some folks here to react to things we may not have anticipated. We're told Elmwood Park is capable and literally wired for the requirements of an act like Sheryl Crow. Bushor says his capable crew has been great, and hopes tomorrow night, that will show. Steve Bushhor There's just a lot of different things that are happening. And there's a lot of infrastructure to learn, and know how take care of and know how to utilize. And we're getting there. Every concert is a new learning experience. And the city hopes, and for future possibilities needs it to be an experience concert-goers will enjoy. Whether you're coming to the concert or not, city officials remind you to be patient this time tomorrow when people are coming downtown for the concert and people who work downtown are leaving from work. For now, we're giving you a live look at some of the sound work that's going on in preparation for tomorrow. In terms of logistics, i spoke to one person who works for Parks and Recreation in Roanoke City. i asked him, 26- pont-2 mile Blue Ridge Marathon course or this concert, which one was more of a challenge. He said he'll take the marathon any day, but they're ready for tomorrow. Live in Roanoke, David Kaplan, wdbj7.
