Dayton is enhancing our annual holiday decorating contest this year to encourage people to Deck Dayton Out in Holiday Cheer!  We have added more categories and will be posting a Directory of Lights with a map to encourage all to enjoy a tour of holiday lights through Dayton.  We need your help to Deck Dayton Out!  Let’s make our Town the place to visit this holiday season!  Please register your address with us to be entered into the contest and to be included in the Directory.  Must register by Monday, December 7th by 4:00 p.m.  All judged residential category winners will receive a special Best Holiday Decoration yard sign and a local gift basket.  In addition, several Honorable Mention awards will be granted and will also receive a yard sign.  See registration form below for complete details.
