With the state opening up and the events of the summer in full swing, it’s been difficult to schedule vendors for Dayton Days.
According to Craig Reichart, finding vendors that have time to head over to Dayton has been a challenge.
The Town of Dayton has waived any vendor fees for the celebration this year.
According to Reichart, forty-four years ago, the town leadership decided to hold a celebration for its residents for no other reason than to celebrate Dayton and thank the residents that call it home.
The celebration has included more events this year with axe throwing, bouncy houses and a high school student only pool party for the teens. Chaperoned, the pool party includes a professional DJ to provide music while families and the younger kids enjoy a free public movie night in the park.
The full schedule of events for Dayton Days can be found below. Potential vendors who wish to attend Dayton Days can call (307) 655-2217.
