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 gets to enjoy the snow flurries. 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! 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.
