I like the gun shows particularly but Ihave been to some others as well. It is OK for a concert/show but being from Tampa there are better places to go for that entertainment. The gun shows here beat the fairgrounds every time!
They need to take a good look at their limited concessions. The lines are long and the selections and seating few. Have more drink vendors and seating - lots of older folks at these shows and it is hard for them to walk around so much and not have a place to park for a bit.

we went to an indoor football game and while we enjoyed the game the arena is old, dirty, and outdated.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the WWE Wrestling that was there in March the building was a little small but there was not a Bad seat in the stadium. We went back there for the craft show the next morning, this turned out to be really small but nice.
