  • Piccadilly Circus Orlando
    The seasoned performers of Piccadilly Circus dazzle audiences of all ages with 90 minutes of acrobatics, comedic high jinks, and trained animals beneath the big top. Audiences gasp at high-flying trapeze artists swooping through the air with the confidence of a kite in a wind tunnel, as well as contortionists able to bend themselves into human bonsai trees. Death-defying motorcyclists roar into a caged globe to perform a 360-degree display of vehicular mastery. Gaggles of clowns coax out chuckles, and a trained elephant parades around the ring, occasionally stopping to memorize an audience member's phone number. General-admission seating surrounds the ring, allowing ample viewpoints from which to observe the boisterous spectacle.

  • Dayton Flyers
    Having soared to the midpoint of their 2011 season with three hard-fought victories, the Dayton Flyers look to continue their ascent in the Pioneer Football League standings by defending their home turf at Welcome Stadium. The team moved to the NCAA I-AA mid-major level in 1993, earning a reputation for excellence with the second-best winning percentage in NCAA FCS football since the turn of the century and a stockpile of 11 Pioneer Football League championships to its name. Head Coach Rick Chamberlin leads the squadron of gridiron giants, frantically waving a traffic-control wand to direct footballs safely into the hands of his receivers. Redshirt freshman quarterback Will Bardo pilots the offense in his first year of action, locking onto top-tier targets such as senior wide receiver Luke Bellman. Team captain and defensive end Devon Langhorst holds down the other side of the ball, distracting quarterbacks from their play calls with fascinating anecdotes about fellow Daytonians and team namesakes Orville and Wilbur Wright.

  • Air Force Museum Foundation
    A crowd of 12,000 gathered across Wright Field on September 3, 1971. The reason: President Nixon had arrived to dedicate the new National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. It was a crowning achievement for the Air Force Museum Foundation, which continues to support the museum in its mission to inform the public on the Air Force's history and heritage. The museum's collection charts military aviation history?from the Wright Brothers to World War II to present day. Museum admission and parking are always free.

  • Vandalia Recreation Center
    A freestanding climbing wall with craggy angles and multiple inclines steals the spotlight at Vandalia Recreation Center by soaring to 27 feet up the middle of an atrium. But climbing is far from the 58,000-square-foot center’s only attraction. Gravity-bound members burn calories at a fleet of cardio machines and build muscle with strength equipment and free weights in the fitness center, and a three-lane, 1/16-mile track helps runners train for catching the gingerbread man. At the Aquatic Center, a zero-depth entry pool welcomes swimmers who rack up laps and children who whoosh down a twisting waterslide and through a giant frog’s mouth or frolic in waterfalls. A vortex and bubble bench set the stage for aquatic fitness, useful for independent exercise or formal classes. Aquatic aerobics sessions join plenty of other organized activities on the center’s bustling schedule of fitness classes. Students stretch during yoga, break a sweat to the Latin beats of Zumba, and pump their legs through spinning classes. While parents work up a sweat, their offspring head to childcare at Ricky’s Tiny Tikes (ages 6 months to 4 years) or Luther’s Jungle indoor playground. Here, children 4 and older clamber through the jungle-themed slides, tubes, and nets with the help of a bi-level play structure or polish their da Vinci forgeries with paper and crayons.
