Personalized Christmas Ornaments

Personalized Christmas Ornaments, Though the temperature outside felt more like fall on Saturday, residents of Dalton were celebrating winter and all that goes with it during the 35th annual Holiday Festival.
A parade at 2 p.m. on Saturday was one of the major highlights of the weekend-long event. Crowds lined the sidewalks of downtown Dalton to see the holiday-themed parade, led by this year’s grand marshal Gene Grim and citizen of the year Lloyal Santmyer.
The parade also included last year’s festival queen Natasha Mangle and this year’s festival queen Morgan Waddel, who was named Friday night along with first attendant Courtney Gardner.
The parade ended at Dalton High School where a large craft show was taking place, another big draw of the festival.
“We sold out our crafting space,” said festival committee member Jen Miller, who added that next year, they will utilize a second gymnasium for the festival. “It’s been wonderful.”
Annette Radsick was selling hand-painted personalized Christmas ornaments at the show. She has been participating in the festival for 15 years.
“They have a lot going on. It’s nice to see the girls come in with their dress and tiaras,” said Radsick of the queens involved in the festival.
Radsick paints personalized ornaments for some of the queens who order them ahead of time.
“It’s a nice family show,” she said.
