“Bridal Expo was overcrowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I went to the Patriot Ctr for a Bridal Expo. It was very crowded though there were vendors both upstairs and downstairs. There was bottlenecking in the wrap around hallway on the upper level. They do serve alcohol. I have also been here for the circus which was enjoyable with decent seats higher up. Average venue. Staff was helpful.
