All Vectren Dayton Air Show parking to be in paved lots this year

VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) — A day of heavy rain in the Miami Valley is forcing a parking change for the Vectren Dayton Air Show.

Everyone attending this year’s air will park in paved lots. Traditionally, people are able to park in fields near the airport, but wet conditions have made those fields unsuitable for parking.

Air show officials worked with the Vandalia Police Department, Butler Township Police Department, Ohio Sate Patrol, Dayton International Airport and Butler High School to accommodate all of this year’s patronts.

People entering or leaving the show through the I-75 Northwoods Boulevard exit or National Road will be directed to one of four parking lots by signs and police officers.

General admission parking will offer two lots. The main lot will be at the former Emery Freight building on Old Springfield Road. The second lot will be at Butler High School on Dixie Highway.

Shuttles will run continuously to transport people to the show. Those shuttles will drop people off at the main gate.

All pavilion and Chalet ticket holders should have a P-Lot parking pass hanging from their rear-view mirror. The new P-Lot location is off Northwoods Boulevard at the site of the former Mahle building.

Shuttles will run continuously for people in this lot as well.

All Chairman’s Club and other VIP Parking Pass holders with a pass hanging from their rear-view mirror will now park on a paved area inside the fence near the show’s main gate. People should follow VIP directional signs and police/security personnel directions.

Sunday’s show gate will be open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
