But an influx of many different events have boosted the bottom line this fiscal year.
The stadium authority is expecting a profit of $2.6 million for the fiscal year that will end on June 30. That’s far more than the $532,000 profit last fiscal year.
Among the money-makers — three sold out concerts by hometown boy Bruno Mars. Add to that other concerts by Eminem, Guns N’ Roses, Eagles, and Snoop Dog and Cardi B.
“Going to the Snoop Dog concert was pretty much fun,” said Brandon Debebar, who was back at the stadium to attend the fair with his family. “That’s a legend you don’t get to see every time.”
And it wasn’t just concerts.
“A few weeks ago we had that monster truck rally, and I don’t know about you, but I’m not a big motor sports fan, but apparently there are a lot of motor sports fans here,” said state Sen. Glenn Wakai.
