I attended and volunteered at the inaugural Dayton Parade sponsored by Croft's Flowers and many other merchants of Dayton.
The parade was well attended by many families and the floats in the parade were beautiful with all their lights, glamour and participants in the floats.
The best part of the parade was the grand finale -- a float driven and constructed by Myrick Constructions and in its sleigh was Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus (Bill and Vicki Beckmeyer) making their grand entrance to celebrate Dayton's "A Country Christmas." The magic ended with a bang with the annual fireworks display. I know that next year I will be there again.
