There’s no Christmas experience quite like Christmas at Carillon Historical Park.

One of Dayton’s newest holiday traditions — one that’s quickly becoming one of the most beloved — is A Carillon Christmas. The historical park’s 65-acre campus is transformed into a winter wonderland featuring the giant Carillon Tree of Light, Santa Claus, “Candy Cane Slopes,” the ever-popular toy train rides and more.
