Many of us remember shopping at Dayton’s and have fond memories of the animated holiday display each year.
Even though I grew up in rural MN, I was able to see the holiday display several times and it was always magical.
The Edina Historical Society is hosting 100 Years of Christmas at Dayton’s, a program that reflects on the history and magic of Dayton’s.
There are two options to attend this year, you can choose between December 3rd and 4th. Tickets range in price from $15-$17.
This event has been popular in the past and has sold out, so you’ll want to get your tickets sooner than later. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Edina Historical Society directly or here on their website.

We will also look at the behind the scenes action by examining anecdotes from the management and the ever-helpful store employees, who made the name Dayton’s synonymous with Christmas shopping.
