Hara Arena is Done

I grew up in this place.  I saw my first hockey game with my brother at Hara when I was seven years old;  I played hockey in the big arena during my pre-teen years;  I worked as the ‘Ice Patrol’ and ‘Concert Security’ during my teen years; I took my sons to Sesame Street on Ice during my young adulthood; I taught my sons how to drive a car in the parking lot during later years; I took my son to see a President speak to a select crowd; and most recently I attended Dayton Demonz/Demolition hockey games at the arena.

The Dayton Hara Arena & Exhibition Center Inc. will hold its last event on Aug. 27… The iconic venue brought sports, concerts, entertainment and special interest shows to the Miami Valley for more than 60 years, but ultimately could not overcome an internal legal battle that has spanned the last two decades, the release said.
