The facility officially reopens tomorrow with a free party featuring tours, sing-alongs and people reading from the best Ike survival stories. Then Jerry Jeff Walker will bring the place back for paying customers with a concert that night.
Cake and punch will also be served. Maureen Patton, executive director of The Grand, tells The Galveston County Daily News that she hopes people "come down to the theater and continue with their own personal healing from the storm."
The event's scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow.
