Get ready for an amazing sight — a drive-in laser light show is coming to the Montgomery County Fairgrounds this weekend.

The drive-in concept came about during the pandemic said founder Jeremy Kwaterski. Since 2019, his company, Cabin Fever, has put on 420 shows around the country.

The Dayton-area shows will be Sept. 9–12 at the fairgrounds, 645 Infirmary Road.

Digital images will be projected onto two screens during the hour-long show while lasers slice through the sky accompanied by music.

“The lasers create a canopy about 20 feet over the tops of the cars,” Kwaterski said, “It’s really, really cool.”

Each of the 25 lasers used for the show is capable of creating 50 beams of light, he said, so there could be a thousand light beams flashing in different colors at any time.

The show happens rain or shine and Kwaterski said wet weather makes the show even better.
