Spectrum To Be Demolished Next Week

It’s official. The Spectrum will face the wrecking ball on Tuesday, November 23 at 12 p.m. as demolition of the legendary arena commences with a free, open-to-the public viewing party which also includes a block party with dollar hot dogs and dollar soft drinks.

Some of the most dynamic professional athletes to ever play in the Spectrum will attend the demolition ceremony, including Philadelphia Flyers alums Bernie Parent and Bob Clarke, and Philadelphia 76ers alum Julius “Dr. J” Erving.

The public is invited to watch as Snider signals Geppert Bros. Inc, of Colmar, PA, to strike the 43-year-old former home of the Flyers and 76ers with the wrecking ball.
