ATLANTA - This is it for the Georgia Dome. Sunday marks the final event inside the facility, before it is cleared-out and eventually demolished.
The Monster Jam truck show goes off at 3:30 Sunday afternoon, following the same event Saturday night.
The Dome is ending its 25-year life span, having hosted the Falcons, two Super Bowls, college football - including the SEC Championship games, Olympic events, and other events. It was built for $214 million, opening in 1992. It is making way for Mercedes-Benz Stadium next door, being constructed for $1.5 billion.

After Sunday, the process of clearing-out the Georgia Dome will begin.
The AJC reports that will include asset liquidation, such as the sell-off of the stadium’s seats.
To follow in April, the Dome’s utilities will be disconnected, interior demolition in late May, capped by the building’s implosion in August.
