DAYTON– The Chamber of Commerce held their 7th annual Taste of Dayton EXPO last Tuesday evening, at the Dayton Community Center.
The event was well attended, with over 30 local businesses participating with booths showcasing their companies. In addition, most booths had food for sampling, whether they were a restaurant or not. Attendees could experience many different and delightful snacks as they went from booth to booth garnering information about the local business community and the services they offer.
The community center was an appropriate venue for this EXPO, which saw its second year at the building. However, some air conditioning problems during the hot day kept the audience from enjoying a completely cool experience.
Sponsor of the EXPO was the FLNB Dayton Financial Center. Other vendors included realtors, banks, restaurants, funeral homes, medical practitioners, food markets, banks, insurance companies, directory publishers, clothing boutiques, financial advisers, swimming pool builders, bakeries, flower and gift shops, apartment complexes, wedding planners and much more. It truly included something for everyong.
Door prizes were given out, as well as awards for best booth. Prizes were also awarded for participants that managed to visit all the booths and have a “passport” signed by everyone.
