What's Great in Dayton: August 13 - 19, 2021

Art on the Lawn returns to Yellow Springs on Saturday.

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

Saturday, right here in the heart of Yellow Springs, is the Art on the Lawn Fine Art Show. 85 artists and artisans from Ohio and beyond are showing and selling their original fine arts and fine crafts. It’s from 10 am to 5 pm rain or shine.

Also on Saturday is BoomerFest. This is an all-day community festival featuring free music and entertainment inspired by the Baby Boomer era. There are food trucks, a selection of craft beers, kids' area, tethered balloon rides, and a classic car cruise-in. It’s at St. Leonard in Centerville and takes place rain or shine!

Both tonight and Saturday there are bands playing at Levitt Pavilion. Dayton. There is no cost for this, but you do need to bring a blanket or a chair. It’s at 7pm and to see who is playing go to:

The Second Street Market is back to business on Saturday. Both inside and out there are all kinds of fresh local foods from 8am to 3pm.

At the Neon Movies there are Family Films on Saturday mornings. Tickets are given on a first-come, first-serve basis. This is a chance for families to enjoy the movie-going experience together and keep kids thoughtfully engaged. There is no cost and it's at 11am.

The United Rehabilitation Services has announced their 18th Annual URS Rubber Duck Regatta and now's the time to adopt your ducks for a chance to win great prizes! Go to: daytonducks.com

Good Luck since today is Friday the 13th….
