Toledo Stories: Arena: Building Community
Thursday, May 15 at 8:00 p.m.
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.
