Since 1988. To kick off your Saturday and Sunday mornings start at the annual Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast - then stroll down historic Pike Street and check out the many craft booths, vendors and informational displays. By the time work your way up the street you'll want to pick a spot to pause and watch the big hometown parade -and later take a tour of the one-room schoolhouse -turned museum and the historic firehouse/jail. After enjoying the parade, festival attendees should definitely go do some chili tasting during the two-day ICS-sanctioned red and green chili and salsa cook-off competition. Saturday Gold Creek Show n' Shine, sponsored by the Dayton Valley Car Club and Dayton Valley Days Committee, will be showcased in a classic show n' shine fashion. On Sunday at noon a local's favorite is scheduled: the annual free Pet Parade, will feature pets of many varieties including dogs, cats, reptiles, birds and a few unexpected kinds. Be sure to sign up your favorite pet and its human for the parade. Railroad Days is also going to be on the corner of Old Town Dayton at U.S. 50 and Main Street, where the Historical Society of Dayton Valley will be showcasing the Carson and Colorado railroad depot that served Dayton for decades, their newest acquisition -a railroad car, and many other facets of their preservation work in the town.
