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.

From Nov. 23 through Dec. 30, daily from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Carillon will celebrate the holiday season. The festivities will be closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Price of admission is $12 per adult (ages 18 to 59), $10 per senior (ages 60+), $8 per child ( ages 3 to 17) and free for children three and under. Tickets can be purchased online at daytonhistory.org or in person.
