Usually held in June, Parks & Rec staff gather the best vendors all in one space, to encourage residents to consider improving their wellness and overall health. The event is designed to provide opportunities for all Deltona residents to educate themselves on health and wellness related resources available to them both in and around Deltona. The expo is for the entire family including children, young adults, moms, dads, and seniors. Vendors from health care providers, wellness organizations, financial and retirement advisors, and government liaisons are on hand to answer questions. Free massages, blood pressure checks, and hearing screenings are usually available.
West Volusia’s largest egg hunt and Deltona’s fastest event is our annual Easter egg collection with over 30,000 eggs. The event takes place annually the Saturday before Easter weekend and begins promptly at 10 a.m. at the Dewey O. Boster Sports Complex, 1200 Saxon Blvd., and is for children ages 2 to 10. (Parents: DON’T BE LATE.) Believe it when we say it is the fastest annual event conducted by the City. The egg “hunting” typically lasts just over 10 minutes. “Hunters” are divided into age categories and should each bring their own baskets for egg collecting. The festivities and entertainment continue until noon keeping all the kids interested giving families lots to do.
The City celebrates pets and their owners each year, usually in March, with this annual pet festival at the Keysville Dog Park, 2461 Keysville Avenue. Low-cost pet shots are usually offered by a local veterinarian. The City partners with organizations like PETCO and H.E.L.P. Animals, Inc. to bring Wags ‘n’ Whiskers to the public.
The Christmas Parade has been cancelled for this year.
There will not be an indoor event this year.
Santa will visit City Hall on Dec 4th to kick-off the Holiday Light Display.

Families should bring blankets and chairs and be prepared for social distancing on the sports field at the park.
Usually in November this event features hand made arts and crafts made by Deltonians and others around our community. The event offers families an opportunity to browse and purchase quality hand-crafted items just in time for the holidays. Contact Deltona Parks & Recreation offices if you are interested in being a vendor.
During the cooler months, Deltona Parks & Rec staff coordinate a popular event giving families an opportunity to join a big community yard sale at a safe place. This event will give families the opportunity to browse old trinkets or bring your items to sell. You never know what item might become someone else’s treasure. Gently used items only, please. There is a $5 fee for the outdoor space. The following items will not be allowed: no business, retail merchandise liquidation, bulk sales, handmade arts, crafts or jewelry of any kind; no questionable material, cars, boats, pets, large furniture or large appliances; no solicitation, requests for donation, advertisement for groups, charity or organization will be allowed.
Mayor Heidi Herzberg and our partners in Volusia County government have brought a Nomi Health, COVID-19 testing site to the Dewey O. Boster Sports Complex. The site is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments are recommended and can be made online; drop-ins are also welcome. Nomi Health will have clinical workers on-site to perform a shallow nasal PCR swab or rapid antigen test on patients. The tests are available for symptomatic and asymptomatic patients ages one and older. Patients can expect results for the PCR test within 24 to 48 hours and results for the rapid antigen test within 20 to 40 minutes. There is no charge for the test, but patients will be asked for health insurance information. Patients without health insurance will not be turned away.
