What's Great in Dayton: September 1 - 7, 2017

Sep 1, 2017

As the city slips out of summer and into fall, there's no better way to kick off the long weekend than with First Friday activities throughout downtown Dayton! Discover a new artist at a gallery opening; kick back with food and drink specials at a bar or restaurant; groove to a local band playing at a nearby pub and many other things to do. Whatever mood strikes, downtown's growing number of independent businesses are ready to serve a proper summer send-off. This starts tonight at 5pm.

Radio-Controlled Model Aircraft jets, warbirds and helicopters from all eras of aviation history. It's from 5pm today and Saturday 9 – 5 and Sunday 9am-4pm on Sunday. Each day will include a noon-time show for the RC pilots to show off their talents and abilities. In addition, Horizon Hobby will provide a "try me" station for visitors to try their hand at flying a RC aircraft. This is at the Air Force Museum and  is open to the public.

Honey Apple Fest. Smokin Bee-Bee-Q has a full menu of their honey-sweetened barbecue, along with delicious desserts, Kettle Corn, and other fall treats like roasted corn on the cob and some  samples of apple butter & biscuits. They will also be demonstrating beekeeping and how to safely extract honey from the hives. Saturday, 10am-6pm, Monnin's Farm at 8201 Frederick Pike, Dayton.

The Dayton Riverfront Plan is a community-wide process to develop a comprehensive plan that explores the tremendous potential of our rivers to enhance regional vibrancy, livability, and economic vitality. Take their 10-minute survey and let them know how you use our waterways!

And finally….Monday is Labor Day…hope you have a wonderful long weekend.

Gotta go,
