Dayton Free Events | May 28-29

Here are a few things going on around town.

Lowe's Build and Grow: BiPlane May 28 10am-12pm

Bring the kid's out this weekend to build their very own Biplane.  The kit will come with stickers to decorate their plane along with two punch out pilots.  You will need to register ahead of time to ensure a spot at your local Lowe's.

Every participant will receive the kit, goggles, apron, a project themed patch and a merit pin for completing the project.  I think the best thing that they will get out of the project is self-confidence.  Wow!  Look what I made, and that is priceless.
