Halloween Festival
All are invited to attend this fun and safe, free Halloween event where children through the age of 12 can enjoy treats, ghoulish games, and plenty of fun activities.

Thanksgiving Dinner
This event has become a Colton tradition that is highly-anticipated by the community. This is an authentic family-style, sit-down dinner with all the fixings. It’s open to any and all who come and many of those who do join us would not otherwise have a Thanksgiving dinner. Plus we have added a to-go option for those unable to enjoy a sit-down dinner.

Holiday Tree Lighting
The merriment begins with the traditional lighting of the Christmas Tree on the front lawn of City Hall. Then, residents bundle up and join us for carols as we walk down La Cadena Drive to Fleming Park. Kids and adults visit with Santa, enjoy some refreshments, and watch a movie on the big screen at Fleming Park.
