Xmas in July
Join us at The Angelus in Hudson Florida for Xmas in July. First 100 kids who are 12 years old or younger get a stocking stuffer gift and everyone get to participate in the Holiday Scavenger Hunt Raffle. Say hi to Santa while he enjoys his summer vacation. Dance to holiday music that will get you moving. Teenagers can even take advantage of multiple selfie spots! Local Pasco county civic services are on-site to connect with those in the community and educate them on their missions & activities. Help save lives by donating blood with OneBlood. The cost for all this? NOTHING! Thanks to our many sponsors, this is a free community event, all you need to bring is your holiday spirit.
But to be honest, the food trucks, local vendors and the Xmas Gift Raffle will cost extra.
FREE Scavenger Hunt & Raffle
Thanks to the vendors and sponsors, attendees of all ages can complete a scavenger hunt and get one raffle ticket for each signed off item.
Returning in 2024 will be the Holiday Scavenger Hunt Raffle. All prizes are donated by attending vendors and sponsors. Attendees interested in participating can pickup a event handout with the scavenger hunt list with it. When participants locate a holiday item near an onsite vendor, they engage with the raffle sponsor to have them sign next to their item. For each item completed, participants get one raffle ticket to win one of many prizes donated by the vendors who are participating.
The reason this activity was added was to encourage attendees to engage with the vendors who donate their time and items to be part of Xmas in July. Previously vendors donated items for the Xmas Gift Raffle but as part of Positive Difference Organization's mission to create positivity and not limit people from experience fun at zero cost, it was decided to use the donated items from vendors for this FREE activity.
