We've been having a wonderful summer in downtown Dayton, with beautiful weather and a fun "block 
party" every week, Dayton Friday Nights! Please join us this week and next for more community fun, including more great music, Dayton Pirate Pride and the "lighting up" of downtown and Dayton neighborhoods with lanterns! Our awesome volunteers Jeannie and Louie will be passing out event surveys during the next couple of events or you can pick one up at our DCDA booth. We'd love the feedback on what YOU thought of Dayton Friday Nights. Thanks for your help!
