The Cincinnati Circus Company will open the show at 6 p.m. with what mall officials described in a release as “a thrilling, high-flying aerial show.” The musical concert will follow at 7 p.m. with The Milos, a Centerville-based alternative folk band. Mall officials said The Milos will perform “a sing-and-dance-along concert, appealing to families of all ages.”
The event will be held in the parking lot outside the former Elder-Beerman store at state routes 725 and 741. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets, and can secure their free tickets in advance through Eventbrite or daytonmall.com, mall officials said. Guests can obtain a ticket at the door if space is still available on the day of the event, mall officials said. Each free ticket is good for up to 10 people.

“Dayton Mall is excited to celebrate dads in such a special way,” Dave Duebber, the Dayton Mall’s general manager, said in a release. “It’s hard to find ways to entertain your family during this cautious time of Covid19, and we’ve figured out a way for folks to social distance, relax and enjoy the concert.”
