Peace One Day Street Festival (D8N)
« on: September 23, 2007, 07:51:20 AM »
Sponsored by the Dayton Peace Museum

The “Peace One Day Street Festival”.  This was held as part of the UN’s World Peace Day. It went from 4 to 9, and had various entertainers, including Dayton's "Sleepybird".





Group dance for kids





The Peace Bird (dove).



The Peacemobile











These are the Unitarians, I think



The Quakers



A group helping ex-prisoners re-enter society



A few of Donal Hinely, a folksinger who came up from Nashville to entertain.  This guy actually is getting airplay as I’ve heard him on the folk music show on WYSO, before this event.

Good!
I love it when people come into a message board and immediately begin to mix it up.  I mean, Jesus, at least say hello!  Do you walk into a room full of strangers, pick a random woman, and tell her she's fat? - buildingcincinnati

Great event; I love the stickers on the pickup truck!

That plaza is such a wonderful public space, and when I've visited Dayton it seems there's often something going on, or just people hanging out.
Better than ever, and always growing! My photography web site

Some people are like slinkies -- not much good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

It's cool that Dayton has all these events and festivals, however attendence for this one looked fairly pathetic.

Well, sorry it isn't a Jena 6-sized rally for Courthouse Square.  Regardless of the size, I'm also glad that downtown is having all sorts of these events.

Looks like more people prefer to save the arcade than achieve world peace.

To be serious, it looks like a fun event.

...I'm also glad that downtown is having all sorts of these events.

Yep. There is something to be said about the progressiveness of some of these events too. Hamilton has a gospel music festival and an abortion rally. Dayton has a Lebanese festival and a gay pride event. (of course, maybe Jeff doesn't attend Dayton's conservative events)
