Search Begins for Centerpiece of 50th Dayton Holiday Festival

Mike Colvin Fast Facts

Nominations are now open for trees to adorn Courthouse Square this holiday season. The Downtown Dayton Partnership is looking for an especially grand tree to highlight the golden anniversary of the Dayton Holiday Festival. The selected tree will be decorated with more than 50,000 lights and gold accents to celebrate the monumental occasion. Nominated trees should stand at approximately 45 to 60 feet tall and 25 feet wide. Colorado green spruce or blue spruce trees are preferred, but other grand and stately evergreens may be considered. The tree must be located in the front or side yard of the nominee’s property with clear access to the tree, free from power lines or transit cables. A winning tree will be selected by the end of October and transported to Courthouse Square at no cost to the property owner. Nominations can be made by calling (937) 224-1518 or by emailing
