Dayton Hamvention



2017 is here and the new venue at the Green Country Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio. I spent Friday and Saturday at the Hamvention but did not have a flea market space. I'm glad I didn't! As usual, it rained and the flea market was a muddy mess! 2017 might be the last year I go to the Hamvention. I love going to this event but I'm tired of the rain and having to walk around the flea market in the mud was not fun for me. Here is a picture of the event site. It's a fabulous site but I just don't think the event organizers were ready for all the mud and what happens in the mud. I watched cars in the on-site parking almost get stuck in the mud.
