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

Tonight and Saturday there are performers at Levitt Pavilion. It’s at 7pm and no cost for this….but you do need to bring a chair. Check out who is playing at: levittdayton.org

The Downtown Adventure is Saturday and it’s a scavenger hunt. You explore Dayton businesses, and sights, and find hidden clues. This fun event is part of the 2021 Ohio Summer in the City.

The Montgomery County Fair starts Sunday and runs an entire week. There are games, entertainment, demo-derby, Tug-A-Truck, tractor pulls, pig races, dog show, petting zoo, and of course the 4H programs and the Future Farmers of America.

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.

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

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! I went there with my grandchildren and those Faerie Houses are amazing.

Hope you keep exploring all around here,
