Dayton Celtic Festival -- July 26 - 28, 2013
There's only one time in Dayton when you can run a 5K and then taste Irish
whisky, attend a Gaelic Mass and watch high energy Celtic-themed performers - or
Irish linen and wool workers if you're so inclined - all in the same weekend.
That weekend is Dayton Celtic Fest.
One of Dayton's most popular festivals came to town again. The United Irish of Dayton Celtic Festival blows through RiverScape MetroPark, bringing with it authentic Irish food and beer, cultural traditions, crafts and of course, the ever popular music. 2013 is the 12th year for this annual event.
Headliners included fan favorite bands Scythian, Gaelic Storm, Teada as well as newcomer, FullSet. Other entertainers include Miami Valley Pipes and Drums, St Andrews Highland Dancers, Celtic Academy of Irish Dance, McGovern Ceili Dancers, Dwyer School of Irish Dance and the Royal Scottish Country Dancers. Additionally, you could sample authentic Irish beers and there was also a Whiskey tasting. Seating was limited on that one.
On the other hand, for those who wanted to get out and move, the event featured a 5K Run/Walk, sponsored by Kettering Sports Medicine and a Celtic Bike Ride was held Sunday, July 28, at 8:30 a.m. at Don Crawford Plaza in front of Fifth Third Field.

Information Radio Visits the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA
In a storied career that spanned more than five decades, Ronald Reagan inspired Americans to act and achieve even more than they imagined. His legacy thrives at The Reagan Library where events and exhibits rediscover his values, actions and spirit of determination.
Perched atop a hill with sweeping views of the southland, the Reagan Library is one of California's most beautiful and unique destinations.
