The C.M. “Mike” Zito Multipurpose Center opened on April 29, 2005. It is a multi-use facility designed to accommodate a wide variety of events including fairs and festivals, church, organization, company activities, family reunions, many horsing and rodeo events, performances and other activities.
The Center includes a 275 feet by 125 feet arena with stadium seating, full commercial kitchen facilities, bathrooms, state-of-the-art sound system, scoreboard and electric display board. It also includes a 32 feet by 50 feet pavilion.
The center was constructed by Iberville Parish Government, and was named in honor of the late C.M. “Mike” Zito, who served on the Iberville Parish Council for 22 years. Zito, who served part of his time on the Council as its President, is considered the father of the Iberville Parish Parks and Recreation District. He worked diligently for many years to improve recreational facilities for parish residents. He was also instrumental in obtaining partial state funding for the Multipurpose Center.
