Events boost local economy
In terms of economic impact, the Paul Battle Arena and Expo Center is proving itself to be the facility that can accomplish big things.
Arena officials recently issued a report putting numbers on paper as far as what the shows they host bring to Tunica County. From Oct. 2009 to Sept. 2010, events at the arena made an economic impact of $25 million.
Arena events coordinator Rebecca Fyfe said the final figure was derived after using a formula from the American Quarter Horse Association.
