The City of Dayton hosted DayGaCom over the weekend, and it was a success for the city. The event took place over three days and brought in thousands of people from across the area.

The attendance for Saturday exceeded expectations as some of the food trucks ran out of food. Even WWE Hall of Fame wrestler “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan had to send someone to purchase more 2x4’s to sign from the local McCoy’s Building Supply.

WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Booker T and his lovely wife, Sharmell took photographs with adoring fans and signed autographs inside the Senior Center, which was turned into the DayGaCom Featured Guest Hall.

Outside of the Dayton Community Center, live professional wrestling took place throughout the day on all three days of the event, as fans looked on, cheering for the heroes and booing the mischievous bad guys. Also, outside for people to enjoy were live MMA performances, laser tag, a superhero car show and numerous games.

Captain Ken Defoor of the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department and his wife Jo smiled and posed for pictures during the festivities dressed as Batman and Wonder Woman and enjoyed the replica 1966 Batmobile that sat inside the main hall of the Dayton Convention Center.

People from across the county dressed in costume, including Dayton City Manager Theo Melancon, who was dressed as Cobra Commander from the popular 1980s cartoon, G.I. Joe.

“DayGaCom was a tremendous success for our community. The feedback we received from the general public, vendors and special guests was phenomenal. We could not have done this without sponsorship from DayNet fiber and we look forward to continuing this event into the future,” said Melancon about the success of the event.
