Hara Arena auction ends later today

There’s just a few hours left to secure memorabilia auctioned off from Hara Arena.

An online auction for items from Hara Arena & Exhibition Center started Thanksgiving Day, and ends tonight. Everything But the House, an online global marketplace for estate sales, will host an online auction showcasing the eclectic assortment of Hara items and memorabilia. All items start at a $1 bid.

People have put in bids for worn-out turnstiles, bright blue hockey score boards, and glittering chandeliers. A vintage Coco-Cola food sign will go for at least $170, and two Dayton Gems hockey goals will go to an owner for $200 or more.

The family-owned arena closed its doors forever in August, after a 60-year run of sports, concerts, entertainment and special shows in the Miami Valley. It hosted its last event on late August.

An estate sale for Ralph and Edna Wampler also ran during the same time on the website. The Wampler family maintained the business for all 60 years, but problems started when founder Harold Wampler died in 1996.
