Party at the Plaza on Friday includes live skits, DJ and axe throwing at Day Air Ballpark

Described as the “tailgate of the summer season,” the free Party in the Plaza will return to Day Air Ballpark this weekend.

Running 5:30-7:30 p.m. June 14, the event is a collaboration between Dayton’s Water Street District and the Dayton Dragons. Party at the Plaza is open to guests of all ages.

The event will feature a number of activities including yard and carnival games, inflatables and cornhole. Axe Backwards Mobile will also be providing real axe throwing.

Businesses and restaurants across Water Street are participating. — the Dragons’ website specifically lists Winans, Moeller Brew Barn and Base Camp. A number of food trucks will be taking part, as well as a beer truck courtesy of Heidelberg Distributing.

There will also be a raffle with guests entering to win a self-care package and spa treatment from Square One Salon. Live entertainment, including skits and a DJ, are also planned. Mix 107.7′s Jeff Stevens will be hosting the party.
