Attended the World Ward carving championship convention Lots of parking, easy to get around the facility. Go straight out the back of the center and have a nice walk by the bay. Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the outdoors.

There really aren't bad seats in the place. It's size is nothing like an indoor hockey or basketball stadium. But if you get an aisle seat it's easier to get out of people's way when they are coming and going.
