Dayton unveils plans for holiday happenings


On the heels of Halloween, the city of Dayton is preparing for an early Christmas.

The community will begin celebrating the winter holiday just after Thanksgiving with plans for a Christmas Kick-Off on Nov. 23 and 24.

Fireworks, hayrides, an appearance from Santa Claus, a lighted parade, wine tastings, a living nativity, art galleries and more are on the agenda in Dayton, dubbed “The Town That Still Believes.”

Mule-drawn hayrides, free historical tours of an 1880 Victorian home, pictures with Santa, make-and-take crafts for kids, live music and refreshments will be available at various downtown businesses. For more details on what’s in store, visit
