Threat of Rain Dims Urban Nights
DAYTON -- Downtown Dayton hoping to make a splash right now with Urban Nights on Friday, but the wrong kind of splash scared folks away.
Organizers were hoping for a turnout of 30-thousand people, but it was really slow going and its seems the chance of rain kept a lot of people at home. But there were hundreds who did come out and say there was more fun for them to go around.
Despite the electric sights and sounds of Urban Nights on Friday evening, rain was on the brain.
"We've been watching the weather like were on a boat or something like that. We're always worried about the weather but I think were past it, " Mohawk Freestyle Grill Owner Aaron Hanover said looking toward the sky.
We were past it and luckily the sky never opened up, but the threat of raindrops made the semi annual event slow going.
"Hopefully the crowd will pick up," Doug Weimer of London, OH sighed.
Weimer was a little disappointed but was quickly comforted when he made his first food stop for a porkchop sandwich.
"It is really really freaking good!" Weimer exclaimed.
Tastebuds weren't the only senses in for a treat. Stages with live music were sprinkled throughout downtown. Nearly 50 shops selling art, clothing and novelties were on display.
"Its great for our businesses down here. Because not only do they see a surge in business but they can highlight all sorts of specials," event organizer Emily Broughton explained.
"Me and my family come down here every year," Dayton's Stephanie Miller said. "I love that its just a great family event and you can check out everything going on downtown. You can see what new store and shops have opened."
Organizers still considered the event a success and in the Oregon District the night was alive and the bars got a nice economic boost.
