Break out your Santa hat or Mrs. Claus skirt for the biggest party of the year during the annual Christmas in July Party in Put in Bay, Ohio. The holiday spirit is everywhere you look as Downtown dresses up with festive decorations, the Antique Carousel is covered in wreaths, and locals go all out by covering their houses in lights and Christmas cheer. Party goers get creative and put on their best Santa suits and hats despite the warm temperatures, and the whole community comes out to toast the season and make new friends. Experience the joys of a winter wonderland in the middle of July!
Each local hotel, restaurant and shop has their own yearly traditions to ring in the Christmas in July season, but expect the biggest pool bars to be packed all day Friday and Saturday where revelers enjoy adult beverages and take in the sunshine. Every block is full of joy, and the weekend culminates in the Christmas Land Parade on Saturday night where local residents decorate their cars and trucks, build floats and show off their Santa Claus spirit as they roll through the fun-filled streets. This fabulous party starts on July 17 and is the most important event on the summer calendar, so make sure to book your hotel reservations way in advance. People look forward to this all year long, and rooms fill up fast.
