Each year the Dayton Auto Show rolls into town with displays of the latest and greatest models and automotive technologies. It is at the Dayton Convention Center today until 9pm, Saturday, 10 to 9; and Sunday, 10 to 6.

Traditional African dance is front and center at the Dayton Metro Library when Anna Omulo and a dance troupe from Wright State University take the floor.

Dayton History Fight Night returns to Memorial Hall. After extensive training the boxers are in front of lots of spectators—many dressed in their best Flapper Era attire—at this one-of-a-kind 1920s-themed boxing exhibition. It is Saturday, and the doors open at 6:30pm…. the fights begin at 8pm.

For more than a dozen years Coco's Bistro has put on "Savor your Sunday" brunches benefiting Stivers School for the Arts. This Sunday is the final for their brunch. It is 10am to 1:30pm and the Stivers Chamber Choir are performing.

TWO TO TANGO! Andrea Arese-Elias, the pianist, and Jimmy Leach, on his trumpet, are presenting an exciting concert of music from Brazil, Argentina and France. This is at St. Paul’s Church in Oakwood and while there is no admission charge a freewill offering will be collected. It is Sunday, 3 to 4:30pm.

Gotta go….
