MY DAY: Christmas & Celtics

Downtown Dayton is alive and bulging with people and numerous activities.

Dayton Dragons Baseball at 5th/3rd Field.

Celtic Festival at Riverscape.

Movies at The Victoria Theatre.

Riverscape is packed but the way the Celtic Festival is spread out along Monument Avenue and some of the side streets it doesn’t feel as packed in.

It’s a beautiful, slightly cool evening along The Great Miami River and I’m loving it.

CHRISTMAS VACATION at Victoria Theatre with 300+ others in the audience was an absolute hoot. I loved the fact that the movie was also uncensored, drawing even more laughs and applause. The biggest applause actually came when the cat was electrocuted… go figure!

I’m sitting on one of the large flat stones a few feet from the river. The sun has set and a faint pink glow hovers above the trees and buildings off to the west.

The Irish rock music from the band on the side street above me is pretty cool and a delightfully different treat than to what I’m accustomed on any other evening.

The mixture of rushing water over the rocks, people chattering and laughing away, the Irish rock band above and behind me, and the music from the main tent to the east is energizing while still relaxing.

I’ve about twenty more minutes of this festive evening, then the end to my Friday Fun Day downtown.
