Temperatures Forecasted to be Average for Air Show

(Average Temperatures…Above Average Show)

Dayton, Ohio – The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will rock the 37th annual Vectren Dayton Air Show Presented by Kroger on July 23rd and 24th.  Good news!  The National Weather Service is now forecasting temperatures to be at or near average for this year’s Air Show at the Dayton International Airport.  This is great news for spectators and organizers of Dayton’s premier summer event.

“This is awesome news,” stated Michael Emoff, Chairman of the Show.  “We’re pleased to hear that temperatures will be moderating somewhat for the show.  We have a fantastic lineup and urge everyone to come out and enjoy the show,” he added.

Organizers offered some tips to keep Air Show fans cool: 
  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before, during and after the show.  Remember that there will be three free water stations on site.
  • Frequent the show’s increased concession stands.   
  • Don’t forget the SPF. Apply sunscreen often.
  • Dress for the weather. Choose light colored, loose fitting clothing.
  • Shield yourself. Sunglasses and hats are recommended. Small personal umbrellas are permitted as long as they do not obstruct the view of others.
  • Shade is key to staying cool.  While most of the show’s premium seating areas have sold out, there are a limited amount of umbrella tables still available in the LaRosa’s Pavilion for Sunday’s show.
