It looks like the new amphitheater at Las Colonias Park may be ready this summer.

At a cost of $6.3 million, this venue will be capable of hosting several different types of events from speaking engagements to concerts.

Overall, I have been excited about this building. It certainly will attract different types of performers and entertainers to Grand Junction. But, there still is that one part of me that is worried we are going to drop the ball on one very important characteristic of this venue. The name. I did go off a little on a recent post. Here it is if you want to take a look at it.

By no means am I spouting just to spout. Or to try and ruffle any feathers, I am simply saying that the name 'Los Colonias' is confusing and very difficult to know how to pronounce correctly. So, the votes are in for the final amphitheater name options:

  • The Riverfront
  • The Monument
  • The Mica
  • The Junction
  • The Grand

VOTE now.
