Home Alone….the famous movie is Saturday, at noon at The Neon.

St. Anne's Hill holiday historic home tour is making its return Friday, Saturday and Sunday with guided tours of some of Dayton's most beautiful historic homes.

The Niederman Christmas Farm and Display is a walk-though Christmas Display and you can enjoy tens of thousands of lights that illuminate the path. You will see life-size nativity and several Biblical scenes telling the real story of Christmas.
