A Carillon Christmas will begin on November 29th with the illumination of the Carillon Tree of Light, Ohio’s tallest tree of light. Join them as this remarkable light display dazzles the Dayton skyline for its third year. The lighting will kick off a month of holiday festivities at Carillon Historical Park!
The Carillon Tree of Light stands at 200 feet, affixed to the top of 151 foot tall Deeds Carillon that was dedicated in 1942 by Col. Edward A. and Mrs. Edith Walton Deeds as a gift to the Dayton community. The first concert played on the Carillon took place on Christmas Eve, 1941, just weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The Tree consists of over 20,000 light bulbs on nearly 100 separate strands that come to life each night at dusk and blaze through until dawn for the entire month of December. The Tree of Light was made possible with the support of Connie and John Taylor.
