It was a very rainy night at the Great Dayton Fair, but as the old saying goes, “The show must go on.” The penultimate night of the fair featured live music and a massive demolition derby, showcasing multiple classes and approximately 150 drivers. The roar of engines and crunch of metal could be heard throughout the fairgrounds, and the event entertained a capacity crowd.

Tonight, the fair is scheduled to conclude with a full day of action, the Rafter Z Rodeo in the grandstand and a fireworks show.
