DAYTON — The 78th annual Easter Sunrise Service, Carillon Historical Park’s oldest event, returns Sunday, April 21, 2019, at 6:30 a.m.
Since 1942, the Easter Sunrise Service has continued, unbroken, a ceaseless tradition in an ever-changing city. In fair weather and foul, during triumphant and trying times, people from all walks of life have gathered at Deeds Carillon, in Dayton’s early morning Easter light, for this powerful display of faith.
This ecumenical service is free to the public. Please bring a chair or blanket for a place to sit. For more information, please contact (937) 293-2841.
