Little Goblins Fun House*: Held at the DYC on the Sunday before Halloween.  There will be friendly super heroes and cartoon characters to greet the children.  Appropriate for children up to age 6.  This is a free event thanks to the generosity of The Dalton Benefit Association’s donation of candy.

Halloween Parade and Costume Show-Off*: The annual parade and costume show has become a long standing tradition in the town.  Kids, parade you costume from the Old Nessacus on Glennon Ave.  We will march up Main St to the CRA.  Your name will be announced as you parade your costume down the stage.  Everyone will receive a grab bag and be decorated as winners.  Candy generously donated by the Dalton Benefit Association.


Light up the Holidays: Every year Dalton lights up the holidays.  Sample special treats offered by our local businesses as you walk down Main St. toward  The Dalton CRA. Santa will be waiting!

Santa Christmas Eve Visits: With help from some of our very generous volunteers, the Dalton CRA offers visits from Santa on Christmas Eve to Dalton residents who are CRA members. In order to have Santa visit call the CRA beginning December 1st at 9:00 am to arrange the visit.  Santa is very busy on Christmas Eve so spots fill up quickly. Visits scheduled on a first come first serve basis.  Santa usually visits between 6 pm and 8 pm. Donations accepted.


Easter Egg Hunt: Every year, on the Saturday before Easter at the CRA outside on the CRA Memorial Lawn or if the weather is not cooperative in the CRA gym. Boys and Girls Pre-School thru grade 5 may participate. There will also be a special visit from the Easter Bunny. Candy generously donated by the Benefit Association.
