Lake Compounce looks to capitalize on eased restrictions

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - The nation's longest continuously operating amusement park is hoping to capitalize on eased restrictions as it approaches a milestone year. Lake Compounce says it has pushed up its opening date three weeks, to May 8. The park is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year. Officials say some changes will be noticeable, like new lighting and new main gate area. Face coverings, social distancing and temperature checks will be a part of the experience, and Plexiglas has been installed in some areas. Currently, outdoor event venues in Connecticut can open to half capacity, up to 10,000 people. Indoor stadiums and arenas are limited to 10 percent of capacity.
