The idea for a summer activity in Downtown Dayton has been discussed for several years between members of MainStreet Dayton, the Dayton Chamber of Commerce, downtown merchants and other interested individuals. “With the new stage at the courthouse and the wonderful facilities at Centennial Park, this seemed the right time to start what we hope will become a continuing summer event,” Mr. Davis said.
In addition to the music, food, refreshment and other vendors will be invited to set up each night.
Summer Nights is organized by the Scopes Festival, with support from Keener Marketing, County Executive George Thacker and Dayton’s Strong Women.
