Dayton, Ohio: Flying High

Commemorate 100 years of aviation July 3-20 at Inventing Flight The Centennial Celebration in the Wright brothers' hometown. Deeds Point, a 12-acre park overlooking downtown Dayton, will be “Celebration Central” with family entertainment and educational, hands-on exhibits: Learn what set the Wright brothers apart from their contemporaries, and imagine the future of flight. At the Dayton Art Institute, you can examine never-before-seen Wright photographs. Then, travel back to Orville and Wilbur's time at four Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Parks, offering a glimpse into the lives of the Wright brothers and Dayton native and poet Paul Laurence Dunbar. Be a part of aviation history at the International Blimp Meet, the world's largest convening of blimps, at the United States Air Force Museum. And marvel at modern-day flight technology at the Dayton Air Show. For event details, call (937) 222-0065 or visit <>.
