        Good weather, promotional prices and curiosity drew crowds to LeSourdsville Lake Amusement Park this past weekend near Monroe.

        The former Americana Amusement Park hosted about 20,000 visitors from its reopening Friday afternoon until closing Sunday evening, marketing director Mike Mefford said.

        “We didn't have any attendance projections, because we didn't know how people would respond to our $1 preview pricing,” he said. “People obviously liked the value and came out.”

        While not all attractions and concessions were in operation, those that were functioned smoothly, Mr. Mefford said, adding that renovations continue when the park is closed Monday-Wednesday.

        LeSourdsville Lake will have another Sneak-a-Peek Weekend beginning Thursday. Hours are noon-9 p.m. Thursday, noon to 10 p.m. Friday-Saturday and noon-9 p.m. Sunday. Regular pricing — $2.95 admission, $4 parking — begins June 20.
