Crews cleaning mold at Hersheypark Arena

Harrisburg

Hersheypark Arena has taken down its ice sheet while crews work to rid the building of mold.

Hershey spokesman Garrett Gallia said the ice will be unavailable until the cleaning process is complete. They’re working to reschedule anyone who had planned to use the facilities in the immediate future.

Gallia said the mold areas are not extensive but need to be addressed.

“Due to the age and configuration of the Arena, this cleaning process is more time consuming and cumbersome than it otherwise would be, and the process required us to take the ice sheet down,” he said in a statement.

Gallia said the mold is due to the incredibly wet weather we experienced this year.
