***Rain or Shine!***
Dayton Mall invites families to celebrate the start of summer at a special FREE concert event called Retro Rewind, on June 19, starting at 1 p.m. The concert, which is also a fundraiser for the non-profit organization For Love of Children Dayton (FLOC), will open with rock and roll sensation The Avalons. Voted Best of Dayton in 2018, The Avalons are known for their outstanding harmonies, high energy choreography, audience participation and hilarious fun. They’ve shared the stage with such well-known artists as The Beach Boys, The Four Tops, The Temptations and more.
Also staring at the event is Ryan Roth and the Comeback Special Band. Ryan has been entertaining folks all over the country and is an award-winning entertainer and Elvis tribute artist. He brings energy and excitement to the stage with the music of legendary Elvis Presley, and has many surprises up his sleeve. Young and old alike will be mesmerized and entertained by his performance.
We encourage you to embrace the Retro theme, and to dress up in your BEST 1950’s garb! There will be a 1950’s dance contest as well as a costume contest, with great prizes for the winners. Dan Edwards, long time local media personality, is the emcee, and sure to keep you laughing and having fun.
Food and beverages will be available from a variety of food trucks including Big Boys BBQ, Heart Attack on Wheels, Little Z Concessions and Mom Makes Mean Melts. In addition, beer, wine and mixed drinks will be available thanks to Heidelberg Distributing Company, and proceeds from Retro Rewind beer and alcohol sales will benefit FLOC - For Love of Children. FLOC serves over 6,000 children in the greater Dayton area who are neglected, abused, in foster care or who need community resources. FLOC is a 100% volunteer-based agency. Restrooms and handwashing stations will be available at the event site. Families are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs. Absolutely no coolers will be permitted.
