Union Street Christmas in July Celebration
Santa Claus is coming to town…a bit early! This time, old Saint Nick has hung up his big red suit and opted for a pair of sunglasses and swim shorts as he prepares to spread holiday cheer on the streets of Old Town when the 3rd Annual Christmas in July Celebration returns to Union Street on Saturday, July 21, 2012.
The event is co-presented by The Christmas Attic and the businesses of Union Street. Approximately 15 retailers and community organizations will host a variety of festive activities either inside stores or on Union Street ranging from pictures with “Summer” Santa & Mrs. Claus, fashion trunk shows, food and wine tastings, cookie decorating, story time for tots, paint your own snowman, ornament making, ice cream social, carnival fun, musical entertainment and much more! The day will be filled with store activities, raffle drawings, shopping/ dining deals and holiday delights for all ages. There will be musical entertainment on Union Street from 12-4PM.
Union Street Gives Back: Each year, the Union Street businesses pick a charity organization to support during the event weekend. This year, 100% of all proceeds from Wish Star sales will benefit Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
More About Christmas Attic
The Christmas Attic has been located in Old Town for some 40 years and boasts two floors of holiday-themed gifts and decor. Staff members say families often come in to the store to see the miniature train that makes it way around the interior of the shop. Besides nutcrackers, ornaments, lights, magnets, candles and a selection of wines, you can also find seasonal decorations (such as Halloween) at the Christmas Attic. But don't be fooled, it's always about Christmas in this store.
