Arena draws crowds, but not profits
Some local citizens and business owners say officials need to look further than the bottom line to see the impact Tunica Arena & Expo Center has on the county, after District 4 Supervisor Henry Nickson, Jr. recently expressed concern for how much the county spends on it.
“We spent millions on an arena that’s supposed to bring horse shows,” Nickson said. “We’re not even breaking even on that.”
The arena is a 48,000 square foot, climate controlled, state-of-the-art facility featuring horse shows, truck and tractor pulls, dog shows, farm equipment shows, and more. It cost the county over $10 million to build the facility.
