The Celebration Arena is a 5,000-seat indoor arena located in Decatur, Alabama. It contains an 150-by-300-foot (45,000 square foot) arena floor that can be used not only for sporting events as well as indoor track meets, rodeos and horse shows (most notably the world championship show for the Racking Horse), but also for trade shows, flea markets, and other special events, such as concerts (concert capacity is up to 7,000). One large significance about this arena is that it is the only structure in Alabama that contains a full indoor track. If any school in the state wishes to hold a track meet in the state, this arena is used. It was formerly the site of the Alabama High School Athletic Association State Indoor Track Meet.[1] Concerns over the facility's safety led to the cancellation of the AHSAA Indoor Track season for 2007-2008.[2]
