This venue is beautiful! Very clean, and very well maintained! There were thousands of people at this rally. The food was fresh and hot. Bathrooms were monitored and kept very cleaned and stocked! Everything was exceptional! Everyone was kind and friendly.

Under normal circumstances this is a fantastic venue for concerts. Internally, it remains so. However, due to construction entering the facility is a nightmare. Due to today's security checks and the incomplete entry areas..it is likely you will arrive late for your ticketed event. Lines...More
