Seasonal Switch Up: Christmas in July
Shopping and dining destination Sundial St. Pete reminds us that there are fewer than 170 days until Christmas. Time to start shopping now at their Christmas in July celebration Friday and Saturday. Not only will there be deals at participating stores, but Santa himself will be stopping by in beach attire, bringing snow with him. The courtyard will be bustling with arts and crafts from the Nomad Art Bus, cookie decorating with Locale Market and a steel drum band banging out holiday favorites. The festivities run all weekend during the center’s hours of operation. Santa appears Friday from 5-8 p.m. and Saturday from
10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. sundialstpete.com.
