This is a VERY nice facility, with very nice restaurants within walking distance from the show site, 2 attached hotels to the Riverfront Center, in a well lighted grooming/ring setup.
The Holiday Inn and Hotel Bentley are attached to the show site, so you do not have to go outside to get to the Riverfront Center.
As usual, our show will have the NOH Groups on Saturday, a very nice raffle with very good items, an eye clinic, t-shirts for sale, and a Match on Saturday evening.
The Southern Handlers Association again will be helping us set up grooming, directing traffic to unload and load on the loading dock, and helping exhibitors to find grooming space. This group has ALWAYS done a fantastic job getting all exhibitors in and out of the building.
There is also some unloading that can be done under the Riverfront Center if you are not comfortable driving up to the loading dock. You will have to unload your grooming supplies, then bring it up the elevators to the main floor (the show and grooming is actually done on the 2nd floor).
NOTE: There are NO RV hookups at this show. There is RV parking, taken by reservation only, located on two lots of the Holiday Inn, across the bridge from the Riverfront Center (across the street from the Hotel Bentley), and also at the Farmer's Market, a short drive along the river from the Riverfront Center.

Note that there is a place to bathe dogs at this facility, which is located under the Riverfront Center.. It will be located outside under the building (under cover). NOTICE: We will NOT be having Reserved Grooming for the next show. Grooming will be on a first come first served basis once we open the building up. But we do the best we can to accommodate all of the exhibitors!
RV parking will be in the 2 parking lots of the Holiday Inn Hotel, located between Jackson St., Main St. (formerly 2nd St.), Elliott St. and 4th St. in downtown Alexandria, Louisiana.
An additional lot located next to the bridge, across the street from the Hotel Bentley will be used for RV parking.
The parking for exhibitors and visitors is in the multi level parking garage attached to the Holiday Inn."
