The Deeds Carillon illuminated for the holidays. An awesome spectacle and an awesomely short-lived road side attraction!
The Deeds Carillon, the largest carillon in Ohio had been transformed into the shape of a holiday tree towering 200 feet in the air and glowing with 20,000 white lights.
The plan was for the Carillon Tree of Light to be turned on nightly through New Year’s Day and be accompanied by the bells playing a medley of holiday classics on the hour.
I went on Sunday night and stood in wonderment of the melodic bells and the strands of light enhancing the already majestic silhouette of the carillon.
Overnight, wind gusts in excess of 40 or even 50 miles per hour damaged many of the strands of light. By morning, the damage was such that the display was beyond repair and will now be taken down for the year.
Quite a whirlwind tale for the inaugural lighting of the the Deeds Carillon. I know you've always wondered what twenty thousand rubber ducks looked like. The Rubber Duck Regatta is hosted every fall by United Rehabilitation Service of Greater Dayton as a fund raiser. Really cool sunset at the airport. Did get stopped by police. They frown upon people taking pictures of the control tower.

Quite a whirlwind tale for the inaugural lighting of the the Deeds Carillon. Carillon Historical Park is named for the 151-foot-tall Deeds Carillon.
A carillon is a musical instrument that is typically housed in the belfry of a church or municipal building. The instrument consists of at least 23 cast bronze, cup-shaped bells.
The tower was built in 1942 to commemorate the Deeds family. When the tower was built, each of 23 bells was inscribed with the name of a family member, with the “silent” bells bearing the names of deceased family members and ringing bells cast with the names of family members then living.
Today, with 57 bells, the carillon is Ohio’s largest. I'm not sure how much competition there is in that category.
The National Park Service listed the Deeds Carillon on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
The carillon is the heaviest musical instrument. The city of Dayton played an important role in the history of the bicycle. The Wright Brothers owned a bicycle shop before delving into aviation. Huffy brand bicycles started in Dayton.
Carillon Historical Park has a building dedicated to bicycles including a couple penny farthings, a bone shaker, a Huffy radio bike and this triple tandem gem. Carillon Historical Park is named for the 151-foot-tall Deeds Carillon.

Quite a whirlwind tale for the inaugural lighting of the the Deeds Carillon. This doctor in Oakwood has planted over 75,000 daffodil bulbs that bloom into fields of gold every spring. Please respect his private property...but it's totally ok to stop and enjoy and take pictures! The British Soldier lichen (Cladonia cristatella) growing on the decaying wood door of a canal lock on display at Carillon Historical Park.
A lichen is a dual organism that consists of a fungus and an alga that live in mutualism, a type of symbiosis in which both constituents share the benefits of the association. The Deeds Carillon illuminated for the holidays. An awesome spectacle and an awesomely short-lived road side attraction!

Quite a whirlwind tale for the inaugural lighting of the the Deeds Carillon. In March of 1913, 8–11 inches of rain fell over three days. The Great Miami River overflowed and downtown Dayton was flooded with up to 20ft of water.
The Great Dayton Flood of 1913 was the greatest natural disaster in Ohio history.
The Carillon Historical Park has an extensive exhibit on the flood, it's aftermath and Dayton's recovery.
Including an animatronic pooch trapped on a rooftop, its recorded whining is quite unsettling.
Nearly 1,400 horses and 2,000 other domestic animals died as a result of the flood Carillon Brewing Company is located next to Carillon Historical Park in Dayton. The Brew House and Restaurant carry through the historical theme by offering beers, root beer and ginger ale crafted with the tools and means available in the 1800's.
For an appetizer, the warm German soft braid pretzel with a crust having just the right amount of chew and a pillow soft inside with whole grain mustard, a SPICY horseradish mustard and a buttery melted cheese sauce for dipping options.

The original 1905 Wright Flyer III, the world's first practical airplane is the only fixed-wing aircraft to be designated a National Historic Landmark. Apollo 15 Command Module Dayton Ohio park system These concrete steps are all that remain of the Dayton Quarantine Hospital.
It opened in 1887 to house patients suffering from smallpox. Later, the hospital treated patients with social diseases and alcoholism. The hospital finally closed in 1949.
Also known as the Pestilence Hospital or the Pest House, the hospital was demolished in 1955. Brewery and restaurant in an active museum! This place will put your jaw on the floor as soon as you enter, with huge ceilings and gorgeous woodwork and a delicious smoky wood smell inside. When the weather is nice, the outdoor patio is a great place to enjoy their delicious German food and tasty beer selection. I love UAVs Locust Grove School No. 12 built in 1896 served as a one room school house near Springfield OH. The building has been moved and rebuilt inside Carillon Historical Park complete with the rope that rings the bell! Welcome to the white sandy beaches and shockingly aquamarine waters of Dayton, OH?!
Unlikely, this utterly eye-catching and environmentally questionable roadside attraction along state route 4, to the best of my detective abilities, is a lime pit.
Take a look on Google maps and you see just how Smurf blue this anomaly really is.
39.775948, -84.163169 The ridiculously refreshing and smooth copper kettle brewed root beer from Carillon Brewing Company made with molasses, brown sugar, star anise, licorice, cinnamon, sarsaparilla, vanilla and mint.
Welcome to animatronic anachronism theater at Carillon Historical Park!
Famous faces in Dayton history including John H. Patterson, Charles Kettering, Edward A. Deeds and Orville and Wilbur Wright take the audience through a 4-D telling of Dayton's influence on invention and technology.
There's audio, video, lightning, wind, rain and plenty of Dad jokes for everyone! This shot is on the bike path that follows the Greater Miami River through Dayton. This bridge is near Riverside Metro Park, and makes for a great place to walk, run or ride. A close-up of some moss growing on the beehive monument of Daniel Beckel.

Now if I could just find a place that will let me ride one... The view of the Dayton skyline from Lookout Tower - the highest point in the city - during the Great Dayton Flood of 1913, it became a place of refuge.

Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum in Dayton, Ohio, is one of the oldest Walkway through metroscape. Tumbleweed is one of the many funky bars in Dayton's historic Oregon District. The decor is bizarre and you'll probably spot something new and entertaining every time you're there, no matter how many times that's been! There's a small second story area which affords a great view of the stage (pictured), where they've got live music several days a week. There's also an outdoor deck which is open in the summer and plastic-wrapped in winter so the smokers can still use it. No draft beers, but plenty of bottled options and other drinks! The 2nd Street Market operates in an historic block-long former 1911 Baltimore and Ohio railroad building. It was saved from demolition and renovated in 2001 in partnership with PNC bank and is operated, oddly enough, by the Five Rivers Metro Parks. The market houses numerous vendors of various crafts and culinary delights. Also home to a selection of restaurants representing cuisines around the world. The Dayton Dragons are a farm team for the Cincinnati Reds. It's minor leagues, so it's way cheaper and just as much fun.

Can't believe the details and beauty. They are all mechanical works of art This microbrewery also features a tremendous selection of other craft beers on tap. They don't sell food but they do frequently have food trucks parked by the back patio, or you can just order in pizza for delivery. Lots of TVs for watching sports, but also shuffleboard and stacks of board games. It can get crowded, but it's a big place so you won't ever really be sardined in shoulder to shoulder. This nifty metropark in downtown Dayton is a combination of farmer's market and local craft sale with food stands. It's only open Thursday - Saturday. Great place to pick up some local produce or dairy or honey, get some lunch while enjoying live music, and find a couple nifty local knick-knacks. It is inside the building (some stalls sprawl into the parking lot when the weather is nice) so rain or shine doesn't matter, and no pups. This store, tucked in among the bars of the Oregon District, is in the vein of the best used book stores - stacks arranged in a way that makes sense to the owner but no one else and narrow aisles to make more room for books. Also there are stacks of comic books and magazines, and all sorts of collector memorabilia for decorations. Come see museum of history and replicas of Wright Brothers early businesses and see where aviation began. #Colorful #WeekendGetaway Gluten free waffles were so yum😋 Discover the Dinosaurs, at the Dayton Convention Center. Watch out! Dinosaurs are known to bite!
An enjoyable experience for children that love dinosaurs. Some are animated and most are loud, but they are well trained and entertaining.
