What's Great in Dayton: May 25 - 31, 2012

May 25, 2012

Chris…..do you have any dogs???

Wilbur and Orville Wright had two ….Flyer and Scipio! On Saturday morning, 9:00 - 11:00 you will learn how these pups touched the lives of these famous brothers. It’s dog walk ranger program at Huffman Prairie Flying Field.

On Sunday at the Little Art Theatre at 4:00pm is The Healthcare Movie. This documentary provides the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, when at one point they were essentially the same.

It's a Memorial Day weekend to remember with an old-fashioned patriotic celebration! Join Dayton History at Carillon Park on Sunday as they celebrate Dayton's history from its founding in 1796 through present day. This is the Dayton Heritage Festival. There will be live entertainment all afternoon and at 7:00pm the
Dayton Philharmonic and The Dayton Ballet will present a featured performance of the three numbers from George Gershwin’s ballet Strike Up The Band. There will be a salute to Veterans of all branches of the armed forces, and the immortal 1812 Overture will be complete with cannon shots! In addition, Dayton’s own Wright B
Flyer will make a fly-over appearance during the playing of the National Anthem. At dusk there will be the fireworks finale.
