Free day at the Spectrum

Saturday's supposed to be rainy. So if you're looking for a free, indoor activity, you might want to go to the Open House at the Spectrum.

The famous South Philadelphia sports and entertainment venue is set to close at the end of the month.

You can relive your memories, and also pick up $1 hot dogs and drinks during Saturday's "Last Stroll." The event is free and runs from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

During "The Last Stroll" fans will be able to enter the former locker rooms of the Philadelphia Flyers and 76ers, as well as stand on the Spectrum concert stage. In addition, some of the great Philadelphia Flyers alumni who made the Spectrum such an intimidating place to play hockey will be on hand to meet fans, as well. These former Flyers include Ed Hospodar, Bob Kelly, Joe Watson, Orest Kindrachuck and Dave Schultz.

"The Spectrum is a very special place for so many millions of people," said Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider. "We know how passionate the residents of the Greater Philadelphia Region are about the Spectrum. We'd like the 'Last Stroll' to be an opportunity for everyone who ever attended an event at the Spectrum to return, reflect on the memories, bring their families and remember all of the great times they had at the Spectrum."
