Okay civic center. Participated at a wrestling tournament. Bathrooms were disgusting and were too small for a civic center.

We host an annual party for the MHMR consumers in one of the large banquet halls. The staff provides everything we need to make a successful event, from cold storage to plentiful waste receptacles. This event has always brought praise from both the MHMR staff and the consumers, and a huge part of our success is the nice facilities and... More

Very nice facility for hosting a rodeo. The arena is designed so all of the seats have a good view. There are plenty of restroom facilities and parking was adequate. The trade/vendor show was very nice. Had a lot of vendors with a huge variety of things to look at and/or buy.

My wife and Grand-Daughter-in-law wanted go to the craft show while we were visiting over the First of November weekend. The Civic center is easy to find and the parking was close and available. The access to the building is good and the inside is very spacious. The restrooms were also very clean which can sometimes be a problem in... More

This is a nice facility - well maintained, and kept very clean. The only disappointment was the concessions. A very poor selection of items (Limited to hot dogs, polish sausage, popcorn or nachos - not even a bag of chips available!) and prices so high the workers should have a bandana over their faces.

It was very small, not what I expected, won’t be going back there again without doing my homework a little... More

A rodeo where actual ranch hands display their skills that are used in daily ranch life. (No bull riding here- there isn't a good reason to ride a bull that I know of??). We've been to this one many times but always look forward to seeing it when schedules will allow. The trade show is worth it though even if... More

We have been several events in the Civic Center and each one was set up nice. The center is located downtown, easy to find, clean and well kept, plenty of parking which is well lighted. The Center is a multi-purpose convention center. It consists of multiple facilities for various events such as crafts, antiques, gun shows, including 2,848-seat auditorium with... More
