This is a pretty nice arena for Bakersfield. I think the concessions and seats are pretty nice. It is fairly intimate so most seats are pretty good. Not much more to ask for from a convention center!

I have sat in various sections of the main arena for graduations and concerts. All of them were comfortable and I could see and hear the action on stage very well: great sound system and AV system.
