Summer Music wraps up, Community Fitness continues, and more at RiverScape

RiverScape Summer Music Series

Summer may be wrapping up – but we still have some excitement in store here at Dayton’s Front Porch. So, pull up those lawn chairs, enjoy one final show, and take in the views of the Five Rivers Fountain of Lights before they pause on Labor Day! Special thanks to our RiverScape Summer Music Series presenting sponsor, Enterprise Roofing, for their support. Be sure to head down early for Happy Hour from 5 to 7 p.m. for a variety of half-priced beers and hard seltzers before the concert! Here is our remaining line-up for the season:
