New this year is Tube Fest, with all day tubing offered at the hill for just $5 and a menu of Southwestern food served all day long.


“We get a lot of families coming out and we wanted to plan a whole evening of fun for everyone,” said Chris Jackson, owner of Adventures on the Great Miami. “There will be lots of warm food along with live music happening around the fire into the night.”

Admittance to the Christmas Tree Burn is free, and food and drinks will be available for purchase.

“The least fun part of every holiday season is taking down the decorations and tree,” said Jackson. “Instead of letting this be a dreary surrender to the long cold months ahead, we came up with the Great Christmas Tree Bon Fire to gather families around this year’s tree one last time.” 

>> These bars in the Oregon District and downtown Dayton are closed temporarily

The Great Christmas Tree Bon Fire’s festivities will start at 5 p.m. on January 6, with the bonfire at 7 p.m. More information can be found on the Facebook event page.
