VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) — It was a rainy start to the Vectren Dayton Air Show Saturday but that didn’t stop spectators.
People poured through the gates after they opened at 9 a.m. Visitors were equipped with rain gear, umbrellas, coats, and hats, ready for a wet weekend.
The opening ceremonies kicked off with a flag drop and the National Anthem.
Whether some of the acts will be flying will be dependent upon the weather. Officials say the show will still go on unless there is lightning.
Kids were able to escape the rain in the Vectren Kids’ Hangar, a special spot on the grounds designated for children. Inside, kids could dig in a sandbox, get their faces painted, climb a jungle-gym, and make arts and crafts. Air show performers will also be stopping by throughout the day to sign autographs for the littlest fans.
Gates close at 6 p.m. Saturday and re-open at 9 a.m. Sunday.
