May will mark The Black River Coliseum's twentieth year as Poplar Bluff's premiere event center. The building was originally designed to serve a number of purposes, including meeting rooms, a near-Olympic sized swimming pool, a fitness center and a full-sized kitchen facility. The Coliseum continues to host hundreds of events and concerts annually and currently houses the Poplar Bluff Municipal Court and the Poplar Bluff City Council chambers.
