Big Names Help Lax Center Make Big Bucks
That big arena on 2nd Street has been pretty busy lately...with attractions like a 'Megadeth' concert, a big dart tournament, and the World's Largest Office Party.
The policy of the La Crosse Center is to fill the building frequently during the first half of the year, because business slows down significantly in the summer. Manager Art Fahey says the 2011 surplus of 281-thousand dollars didn't all come from concerts and parties, but often from conventions.
For the first four months of this year, the surplus is 194-thousand dollars. Compare that to the total for all of 2010, which was just under 80-thousand dollars.
