Here are a few things going on around town.

National US Air Force Museum | Family Day @10am-3pm

This month theme will be all about helicopters! My boys love them and I know this will be a fun day for them.  Here are some activities that are scheduled for this day:

  • Try flying an RC helicopter
  • Check out different types of Helicopters on dislay
  • Learn why Helicopters are complicated to fly
  • Storytime begins at 11:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. in the Early Years Gallery.

Centerville Police | Bicycle Rodeo @9am-12pm

This event will be held at Miami Valley South location on the upper deck of the garage off Wilmington Pike in Centerville.  This will be a great event for the kids to learn bike safety and have fun at the same time.  Some highlights include:

  • Free Bike Helmets *While Supplies Last*
  • Bike Maintenance Check
  • Bike Maneuverability Tests
  • McGruff the Crime Dog
  • Prize Drawings

This will be fun for the kids to learn some bike safety tips to keep them safe this summer.  I know my boys would love the bike maneuverability tests because they are always zipping through our cul de sac!

Eastwood Lake | Boat Test and Tune @ 8am-6pm

Come out to Eastwood Lake Metropark  to watch the speed boats get ready for the upcoming Racing Season.  They will have hydroplane, vintage and outboard boats.  I grew up close to this park and I loved watching these boats but they are really loud!
