Had a business related show to attend as an exhibitor, was very impressed with the overall facility. Great for our show, there is also an arena and theater for other venues as well.

We attended a gymnastics event at the Civic Center. Place was easy to find, parking was easy to access. Weekend parking rates for our event were $7/day. The center was clean, plenty of bathrooms, which were also clean. Concession stand was pricey (as usual), but had decent items available (chicken strips with fries filled us up).

Have been to some great concerts in the arena and the auditorium has wonderful acoustics. Parking across the street makes it very convenient to get from your car to the Civic Center!

The Civic Center is a great venue for the state tournament. Parking was easy, the building was clean and both food service and bathrooms were convenient. The only criticism I have is that the food and drink prices are extremely high. Three dollars for a small bottle of water is just ridiculous.
