Santa’s Workshop ---Christmas in July 15-20 Downtown San Augustine The excitement is building for the premier of Christmas in July throughout downtown San Augustine! The Main Street Committee is preparing for a big week! We are attempting to start a Santa’s Workshop for downtown San Augustine! Store owner, Joy Sowell is this year’s chair for the event.Committee members for Christmas in July are encouraging the retail merchants to pull out all the stops in-house with merchandise, refreshments, demonstrations, and of course showcase their already awesome lines of merchandise. This is a shop local event and most of all an event to be fun and entertaining to both children and adults. Participating merchants will make their own signs! These will serve as the Christmas in July Event way finders. So far we have these workshop stores: Santa’s Candy Shop, Santa’s Ornament Shop, Santa’s Sox Shop, Santa’s Jelly Shop, Santa’s Stocking Stuffer Shop, Santa’s Furniture Shop, Santa’s Flower Shop, and Santa’s Cupcake Shop. The merchant signs, each displaying Santa’s _________Shop will be judged on readability, design, and Christmas theme usage. Only one merchant will win the contest! Art demonstrations of several kinds will be showcased in various stores! Our summer “Elf on the Shelf” will be out for someone to find in different stores throughout the week! Small gift prizes offered by the merchant will be given to the finder of the elf. Special summer cool and refreshing Christmas treats including flavored melted snow will be offered! You might even prepare your family Christmas cards early with a whimsical sandy seashore backdrop or maybe the “traditional” either way a photographer will be available! On Friday, July 19 from 10 a.m. – until 4 p.m. an old fashioned decorated “John Deer” and attached flatbed “sleigh” hay ride will ramble through the historic downtown with rides offered to sightseers! Another activity planned is the showing of a well- loved, digitally animated Christmas movie! It will be shown Thursday, July 18, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the historic Knight Parker Building. The address is 109 South Harrison across the street from the courthouse. Refreshments will be served! Neat ideas are floating around and we look forward to seeing you in downtown San Augustine! That’s the week of July 15-20 with all events being held during the day! Call us with your ideas! 936-201-9798 or 936-275-3172
