The Fries Beach Party Concert
- August 7
Dayton Mall invites families to a special FREE concert event called Retro Rewind, on September 18, starting at 1 p.m. The gates open at 11:00 and the day kicks off with a special free KidX event - where kids will learn how to do the twist, the hula hoop, listen to fun 1950's music and receive a free goodie bad.
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! Prizes will be awarded throughout the day. 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 and beer and wine will be available thanks to Heidelberg Distributing Company, with 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.
