What's Great in Dayton: July 29 - August 4, 2016

On Saturday at 10am you can go on a Hidden Oakwood Walk. Tucked into one Oakwood neighborhood you'll find three natural parks that invite calm reflection and appreciation of nature. The 1.5 mile walk will begin and end in front of Wright Library, and water will be provided.

And if you want to check out some Solar cars that are racing cross country go to the Carillon Historical Park from 1:30 - 6pm on Saturday. Depending on traffic, weather, and energy management decisions each solar car will stay on display at the checkpoint for 45-minutes before continuing on the route. There is no cost and open to the public. On your Facebook find AmericanSolarChallenge
