Events and Attractions
You know that Spring has arrived in Walton when the City holds it's annual Easter Egg Hunt the Saturday before Easter weekend in the Community Park. In a matter of minutes, over two thousand eggs are gathered by the children who come to fill their baskets and visit with the Easter Bunny.
Each May the community gathers at Walton Cemetery and Veterans Memorial to attend the Memorial Day Services usually beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Memorial Day. The Cemetery is located on Church Street, just behind City Hall.
Walton has held an annual "Old Fashion Day" Festival on the September Saturday following Labor Day since 1973, Boone County’s 175th birthday. Following a parade, there is a street fair with crafts, games and musical entertainment.
On the first Friday evening in December the city begins the holiday season with Christmas on Main Parade up Main Street. Santa comes to town in a horse drawn carriage to visit with the children following the parade. There's also live Nativity animals, and Main Street businesses greet visitors with refreshments.
