East Kentucky Exposition Center





The East Kentucky Exposition Center lies in the heart of Eastern Kentucky, in the city of Pikeville. The Expo Center is a multi-purpose arena with 24,000 square feet and seating 7,000 people. It features 3 ballroom suites, 4 individual suites and 2 box office locations along with 5 concession stands and their own Executive Chef.


Each year The Expo Center holds 200 or more events and has nearly 200,000 people come through their doors. From the Boat TV show, Appalachian Crafts Fair and the Tidal 1 Conference  to Kentucky Natives Sundy Best and names like Kid Rock, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hank Williams Jr.


My family and I recently had the opportunity to review the Disney Live Mickey and Minnies Doorway to Magic Show. I had heard how amazing these shows were and always planned on taking the boys, but for some reason or another things always came up and we didn't get to go. Thankfully, we picked the perfect
time to go. My boys are ages nine and four. Their at the age where they could truly appreciate the show, understand what was going on and most importantly they sat still the entire time without getting tired or bored. With characters like Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Goofy, Toy Story characters and even a few Disney Princesses, the show kept my kids attention the entire time. There were lots of singing and bright lights, and the characters  did great at keeping the audience engaged. Buzz Lightyear was one of our favorites. His segment included alot of lazer lights which my boys thought was "awesome". My four year old is in the Toy Story phase where hes dressed up as Cowboy Woody all day long so ofcourse he loved seeing the Toy Story characters jump out of the huge toy story chest and jump rope. The entire show was fabulous and ended up being one of my favorite activities with my boys.
