The Grande Illumination tree lighting on Friday, November 25, 7:45 p.m. at Courthouse Square, Third & Main Streets. Watch the holidays light up during Dayton's traditional tree lighting. At 7:45, we'll throw the switch and approximately 50,000 colored lights will brighten the two-story-tall holiday tree on Courthouse Square.
The Dayton Children's Parade, Spectacular in Lights on Friday, November 25, Approximately 8 p.m. Along Second, Main & Fourth Streets. Immediately following the tree lighting, the Children's Parade will round the corner of Second and Main streets to start its route through downtown, sparkling with more than 100,000 lights! Watch decorative seasonal floats, horses, drill teams and bands, and some special holiday treats.
Holiday Village at Kettering Tower lobby, southeast corner of Second and Main Streets; on Friday, November 25, 4-9 p.m. Visit a magical fantasy village featuring free crafts, games and lots of other surprises for kids. A favorite at the Holiday Village is Time Warner Cable's 'Dial-an-Elf' phone bank, where kids can call the North Pole and share their wish list with one of Santa's official helpers!
