The AHSAA state championship was held here this weekend. The set up is great as there is a very good view of the action. It is easy to move from place to place to see better.

The VBC playhouse is a nice intimate setting for various presentations. We’ve attended plays and ballets and now an opera here. This particular show was enjoyable and the children were quite precious.

The VBC itself is a pretty nice civic center. The concert hall, arena and meeting areas are all pretty decent. Where their problem lies is the parking nightmare that happens when they have multiple events scheduled. The 2 garages appear to have one entrance each...More

What a fun place to watch hockey. The arena is so consumer friendly and everyone is so friendly. Tickets are very reasonably priced as are their concessions. They have full bar services on the concourse area and ample stands for non alcoholic beverages as well...More

We attended a performance in the Mark Smith Auditorium. The balcony seating was excellent with full and easy viewing and hearing. The staff was very accommodating for our needed handicap parking and seating.
