BILOXI — Construction and remodeling are complete at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center.

A 50-foot-long ribbon will be cut tomorrow at 5 p.m.

In less than three years the existing Biloxi convention center was completely remodeled, and a convention center expansion built along with a parking garage. The Coliseum has new doors and windows, a new electronic scoreboard, restrooms, security and concession stands.

Executive director Bill Holmes tells The Sun Herald that the total cost was $118 million.

Holmes said funding came from FEMA and Hurricane Katrina insurance proceeds, Community Development Block Grant money and bonds approved by Harrison County voters in a referendum.
