VANDALIA – Heavy rains have made the field parking normally used by the air show for spectator parking unusable. The show, in cooperation with the City of Vandalia Police Department, Butler Township Police Department, and Dayton International Airport, has developed a new parking plan for Sunday’s show that will place all spectator vehicles on paved lots.
Spectators entering or leaving the show via I-75 Northwood’s Blvd (Exit 64) or National Road will be directed to one of three air show parking lots by signage and police officers:
1. General Admission Parking
All general admission parking will be at the former Emery Freight Building on Old Springfield Road. Patrons parking in this lot will be shuttled in air-conditioned buses running continuously to and from the show’s main gate.
2. P-Lot Parking
All Pavilion and Chalet ticket holders that have a P-Lot Parking pass hanging from their rear view mirror will be routed to the new P-Lot located off Northwoods Blvd. The lot is the site of the former Vandalia Delphi building. Patrons parking in this lot will be shuttled in air-conditioned buses running continuously to the Pavilion and Chalet areas.
3. VIP Parking
All Chairman’s Club and other VIP Parking Pass holders with a pass hanging from their rear view mirror will now park on a paved area inside the fence near the show main gate. Patrons should simply follow VIP directional signage and police/security personnel directions. They will walk from the VIP on-site lot location to their destination on show grounds.
Patrons should find these lots very convenient to use. Sunday’s show gate will be open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm at Dayton International Airport
