Old Timers Weekend

Old Timers Weekend_Celebrate old friendships and new at the Dayton Fire District’s annual Old Timers Weekend Chicken Barbecue. Held on the last weekend of July in Dayton’s Courthouse Square Park, this annual celebration began in 1934 as a town potluck and has continued through the years to become a time of celebration and family and class reunions.

This year the festivities will begin on Friday, July 25th as part of the Friday Nights downtown events, with a Cruise In on Fourth Street from 5-9 pm, vendors in the park, a bike decorating event from 4-5:30 pm, followed by the Community Parade at 6 pm, the Senior Court Coronation at 7 p.m., and live music by Bill Lasslett’s band starting after the Coronation until 9 p.m.

On Saturday, family and class reunions occur in the Park, and on Sunday, enjoy a wonderful chicken dinner with all the fix ins’. This Sunday fundraiser is the Fire District’s main fundraiser to help support Fire Prevention Education.
