A piece of Regina’s history will be torn down on Tuesday.
Nearly a century of memories are packed into the Regina Exhibition Stadium and later in the afternoon, the structure will be demolished.
The demolition will begin at 2:30 p.m.
The doors to the arena closed in 2010, but the facility has played host to concerts, hockey games, farm shows, the Ice Capades, and the Shrine Circus in its storied past.
The Regina Pats used to play at the rink until the team moved to the Agridome in 1977.
The building also featured big stars in the 50’s and 60’s like Paul Anka, the Who, the Beach Boys and Johnny Cash
When the old facility is demolished, construction will begin on the new international trade centre which will feature a 150-thousand square foot multiplex with three exhibit halls and a mezzanine level.
It’s a 37-million dollar project and will attach all buildings on the Evraz Place property, except for the new Mosaic Stadium.
The new trade centre is expected to be complete in 2017.
