Hometown Heroes Celebration Night


The Dayton Dragons, in conjunction with the Dayton Development Coalition [DDC], annually hosts two "Hometown Heroes Celebration Nights" at Fifth Third Field.

The 2017 Celebration Nights are:

  • Saturday, May 20
  • Saturday, August 5


As part of the season-long celebration of the Hometown Heroes program, the DDC takes time to pay tribute to all service men and women associated with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the Springfield Air National Guard Base.

Festivities begin with military displays on the Fifth Third Field plaza at 5:30 p.m with the game start time of 7:00pm. Other Celebration Night activities include:

  • Display of a giant American flag by children of local Airmen
  • Wright-Patterson Honor Guard will present the colors
  • Honoring of Airmen who recently returned from overseas duty. These Airmen were deployed from WPAFB around the world including Afghanistan and Iraq.
  • Swear-in of recruits
  • And so much more!


Make sure to mark this date on your calendar to come out and celebrate with us as we take a moment to honor our local Hometown Heroes.
