March 29, 2013

An impact study finds that all of the horse shows, dog shows, and other events at the Garrison Arena near Pendleton pump millions of dollars into the Upstate economy. The facility that offers the largest indoor show ring within 200 miles draws some 100 thousand visitors a year and generates $8.9 million in total economic impact for Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties. It translates to money spent for lodging, meals and shopping. The study found that the Garrison has potential to grow and could significantly expand its impact.
