1) August 2st-7th: Greene County Fair
120 Fairground Rd, Xenia OH 45385. Come to the Greene County Fair for animals, food, rides and fun. This is personally one of my favorites fairs because it is smaller, paved and has flushing toilets (a huge perk for littles who hate Porto potties!!!)
2) August 3rd: Mystery Night out with Centerville PD
6-8:30 p.m. at Stubbs Park Amphitheater. 255 W Spring Valley Pike, Centerville OH. The pandemic made fitness harder to achieve. This year the mystery challenge is “Find the Fit Ewe.” Participants will receive and solve clues via their smartphones from a link that will be sent out as the event begins. Each solved clause will take you to a location in the Centerville area. Each person who completes the challenge will receive a free tee-shirt while supplies last. Fun for the entire family!
