Want to see the big bada boom this Independence Day?
Some of downtown Dayton’s best Fourth of July fireworks viewing spots are hiding in plain sight, but sometimes you have to be a little creative.
It is unclear whether the Main Street bridge between McPherson Town an downtown Dayton will be open for pedestrian viewing of the fireworks during Lights in Flight on Tuesday. With that being one of the popular viewing spots for Dayton’s fireworks show set for the riverfront on Tuesday, July 3, we asked Downtown Dayton Partnership spokeswoman Val Hunt Beerbower for recommendations on some cool places to see the show.
🎇1) The Main Street Garage with access points on First and Main streets. There is a $3 flat fee and you can access all floors.
🎆 2) From a Kayak on the Great Miami River. This is Val’s favorite place to see the show.
🎇3) Depending on the water levels, along the river near RiverScape’s River Run. Bring a lawn chair.
🎆 4) On the recently replaced, 10.1 million Webster Street Bridge.

🎇 5) Along the Great Miami Recreational Trail near River's Edge Montessori, 108 Linwood St. in Dayton.
