Pan American Livestock Arena

Livestock Arena

Although it has the same 1936 "Texanic" appearance as several of the park's other structures, the livestock arena dates back to the turn of the 20th century. In the past, it housed an ice-skating rink and hosted the annual IceCapades. Today, during the run of the annual state fair, it's where the popular pig races are held.
