Attended a food expo. Small size arena, but clean facility. Street parking available all around as is a parking garage. Area seems pretty decent

Classic place just like the Pioneer Stadium and a pinpoint of Elmira “culture”(?). It’s not high tech or really out of this world but the love and memories that can be made here along with the nice interactive atmosphere with events and games held here gives it an iconic feel!

Great place for fun and excitement. But have a suggestion for the concession stand. Please get veggie burgers? Also take it easy on the salt. If people want more, let them add more themselves. You can always add salt, but you can’t take it out.
