What's Great in Dayton: February 19 - 25 2016


If you are interested in seeing some spring flowers then on Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 4 is the 2016 Spring Orchid Show. This is at Cox Arboreteum and this show is amazing.

On Saturday The Air Force Museum Theater will be commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Tuskegee Airmen. At 4 p.m., they will be premiering a 90 minute documentary which tells the story of America's first squadron of African American pilots.

Watch four new creations of dance by women choreographers as they bring down to earth their dreams and have them leap up and soar into the sun. The title of this is Etchings and they will etch their creations on the landscape and in the sky with movement and grace. This is DCDC and the show is Saturday, 7:30 pm and Sunday, 3:00 pm at Stivers High School for the Arts.

Step back into the pastoral setting of early Van Buren Township and review the major events occurring in Hills and Dales Park. Explore the Old Barn Club and visit the nine Adirondack-style camps that hosted countless picnics and parties during the park's heyday. This program is on Sunday, 2 pm, Wright Memorial Public Library in Oakwood.
