I came to the Eastern Gun Show at the Expo center, and was surprised at how large it was, and how nice the facilities are. There were at least 4 or 5 separate events this Saturday...the gun show, a golf show, a home show, a military how and a couple of others. Traffic was handled pretty well. Parking is $8/car.... More

We attended the 2015 National Farm Machinery Show at the Kentucky Expo Center. It was easy to find the Expo Center and the parking was well organized. The Expo Center is huge. Clean facility and friendly staff working at the show. Traffic in and out of the Expo Center moved along nicely. The only complaint would be the road construction... More

This is an extremely large convention center. We were here for a cheer competition. There were about 11000 cheerleaders participating plus they had at least 2 other events going on and there was plenty of room. Good food vendors. Not ridiculously expensive. Staff was friendly. Have to pay to park but that is pretty typical at competitions.

This venue is large and was plenty big enough for all the cheerleaders and families. I would think that there would be more hotels or restaurants "connected" to this venue. They did provide many food choices, but for 2 full days, I was tired of the same stands. The large arenas were set up nicely, but by sunday, the place... More

We visited the fair exposition center is full of free fun things for children to see and do. They have lots of things for sale and lots of food vendors. The cost of $10. dollars each to get in and then $8. to park seems like a good deal for a day of fun.

Some food vendors were still outside and they had a large midway for those that wanted to ride.Horse show at 7:00 and christian concert at... More

We really enjoyed our trip to the State Fair. The booths and the exhibits were great. We spent from noon tell 7 on seniors day. The down side is the price of the food and drinks. This has to put a damper on families with children. The drinks are $3.50. A hamburger is $8.50 with a doughnut bun. Funnel cakes... More
