Beer sales to be allowed at Miss. Coliseum

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - In October a well-known country singer is set to perform at the Mississippi Coliseum in downtown Jackson.

But perhaps the star of the show will be something that's never appeared legally.

The state fair commission has voted to allow beer sales this year at the coliseum.

Some say the lack of beer availability at the facility has kept the coliseum off the list of potential sites for large drawing acts.

Some have even said it is behind the failure of minor league sports team that once called it home.

Opponents argue since the coliseum sits on state property, the sale of alcoholic beverages shouldn't be allowed.

Hank Williams junior and several others will hit the stage October 16th.
