Wondering what’s going on here in Miami County? Consider some of these great ideas on how to spend your time when you visit us.
How to spend time in Miami County…
Be sure to check out Sculptures on the Square in downtown Troy. These expressions of reality by master sculptor Seward Johnson are easy to confuse as real people, the sculptures are so lifelike! Take a picture of you and Marilyn in front of the Mayflower Arts Center or grab a hotdog from the vendor outside K’s diner. The sculptures will only be around for a short time. Get here before they are gone on September 13, 2019.
Do some good by attending the Miami County Tornado Benefit Music Concert. Hosted by local favorite band, Rum River Blend, the concert will happen on June 29th from 1:30-7pm at the Tipp Roller Mill venue. There is a $10 suggested donation at the door and all proceeds go to the Milton Union Council of churches tornado relief fund. We hope to see you there!
If you are here during the July 4th holiday, we have several perfect home town activities here in Miami County.
Beginning June 28th you can enjoy the West Milton 4th of July Festival and Celebration which includes carnival rides and food vendors every night from 6-10pm leading up to July 4th. The festival ends with a big fireworks display at 10pm on the 4th.
The Piqua 4th Fest is another great way to spend the day. Activities start at noon on July 4th in downtown Piqua where you’ll find face painters, games, music, and food! Be sure to get there early to get a good spot for the Fireworks show which begins at 10pm!
Rock out with the Epic Eagles Tribute Band at Treasure Island Park in Troy before the fireworks! Bring your chairs and listen to this truly epic tribute to the classic music of The Eagles. July 4th from 7-9:30 pm, right before the big booms light the sky of Troy.
