In 2017, the 27th Annual Peace Bridge Day provides a time and space for people to come together to feel a sense of enhanced joy, peace and unity by meeting for a day of events on Dayton’s historic Third Street Bridge, designated the Peace Bridge since 1966. The Day provides a venue for the local interfaith celebration of the National Day of Prayer, May 7. The Peace Bridge event calls all people of Dayton, regardless of race, creed, or religion, to come together as one spirit. Peace Bridge Day events will strengthen Dayton through the unity expressed in walking together, listening to each other, expressing ideas, and committing to actions that will bring positive progress to the Dayton Region. Adults and youth are encouraged to attend.
