PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - A new entertainment venue in Pikeville is now complete.
The city installed terrace seating in the hillside along the bypass, to create what they call the Riverfill Arena.
Officials say previously the parking lot was used for entertainment, and folks just sat on the hillside which is why they decided to install the seating.
Sean Cochran says, "This enables us to offer a wide variety of events from drag races, to outdoor plays, to concerts...we have our first outdoor concert scheduled for August 31st with Sundy Best."
The first event in the Riverfill Arena will take place this Saturday with drag races starting at 6 p.m.
