Convention center is very nice but be sure to get a ballroom if you have 75 or more people. The hot bar stand is really expensive but they have great chicken fingers and french fries.

Great parking, large halls with high ceilings, bathrooms easy to access, air conditioned and clean. Looks like a great place for meetings and sports events.

We visited the convention center for the Ward Wildfowl World Woodcarving competition. It was perfect as always. There were hundreds of entries, you can purchase supplies and even wood in front of the convention center.

We were there for a cheerleading competition that was taking place throughout the weekend. The parking was horrible. We ended up parking 5 blocks away and walking.
