What's Great In Dayton: July 2 - 8, 2021


Charlie Campbell's picks for what to do and see this week in the Miami Valley

Five Rivers MetroParks welcomes people to explore their wild sides by spending a night under the stars in one of 23 campsites. Camping is a great way to experience nature at dawn, dusk, and even after dark. These are front country campsites that are easily accessible by car or hike-in backcountry sites for the more adventurous camper.

The Downtown Adventure is your chance to explore downtown Dayton businesses, and sights, in a scavenger hunt for the chance to win prizes! This fun event will be held Saturday, July 10 as part of the 2021 Ohio Summer in the City lineup. Register your team now and sign up for the adventure to find hidden clues throughout the city.

At Summer Challenge 2021 there are dozens of activities for the adventurer, the art lover, the aviation enthusiast, the foodie, the beer connoisseur, the paddler, and everyone else too. Check out this summer challenge at: greatmiamiriverway.com/summer-challenge

On Sunday July 4 go to Aullwood Farm and Nature Center. Your family and friends can explore eight miles of trails, meet some animals at the farm. and at the center, look for native birds, and then discover the Faerie Houses! This is from 1 to 5pm and there is no cost.

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. It feels a bit like Sex and the City circa 1793 in Paris. These women are all committed to finding Equality for Women while trying to figure out what it means to be “revolutionary.” This grand, and zany, comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how they actually go about changing the world without losing their heads. This is at the Human Race Theatre and is streaming now through Sunday

Happy Boom Day…
