Arena: Building Community -
From the moment the first spade of dirt was overturned at groundbreaking ceremonies on October 1, 2007, sports and special event fans in our region were about to enter a thrilling new era.
WGTE's original production, Arena: Building Community follows the progress of the state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly facility in downtown Toledo, beginning with the demolition of the venerable east-side sports arena and continuing through the new Arena's opening weeks in October 2009.
Home to the Toledo Walleye Professional Hockey Club, the Lucas County Arena is a showcase for other special events - from the circus and spectacular concerts to bull-riding and much more.
In Arena: Building Community, only WGTE Public Television viewers will enjoy rare, behind-the-scenes access to witness the Arena's construction, opening games and events, and see how it has transformed the Glass City.
The WGTE produciton "Toledo Hockey History" is also included on the DVD of "Toledo Stories: Arena - Building Community."
