UPDATE 10:45 p.m.
Kimberly Smith and her friends were out Friday evening for the Rodney Atkins concert in Tallahassee.
"What brought me out here was the act but I loved the fact that it's at Cascades Park," said Smith.
Friday marks the third of ten ticketed concerts at the amphitheater put on by Visit Tallahassee. A process that has gone smoother for executive director Lee Daniel.
"You can put on a show and put on first class shows and give not only the performers and the audience as well you know the kind of experience that you want," said Daniel an hour before the concert began.
Many people will come to the concerts just to see the great acts like the one you see behind me but many people just want to see what kind of atmosphere's created by the Capital City Amphitheater."
"My daughter said something about it a couple of weeks ago and so we figured we'd eventually come," said concert goer Rick Russell.
For Smith, the reviews of the venue are strong which means good things for the city.
"It's just something that you can bring your family you can bring your pets you can just hang out with your friends. Absolutely, it's something that Tallahassee needed and I think that they've done a great job with it."
