Ho-Ho-Hold on Summer! Silver Beach Carousel's Christmas in July!

Get ready for some jolly fun in the summertime sun at the Silver Beach Carousel's Christmas in July celebration! We're bringing the festive cheer on July 27th-28th, so come on down and enjoy some holiday cheer amidst the summer vibes. Santa’s favorite place to vacation is St. Joseph, and we’re excited to welcome Santa and Mrs. Claus to the Carousel!

Here's what's in store:

  • Merry Meet & Greet with Santa & Mrs. Claus: The jolly couple themselves will be taking a break from the North Pole to visit the carousel Saturday & Sunday (July 27th & 28th) from 2-9 pm (with cookie breaks for Santa)
  • Deck the Halls (Carousel Style): Jingle all the way as we fill the air with delightful Christmas music on our band organ. And listen closely for the familiar sound of Jingle Bells to mark the start of each ride!
  • Noel the Coloring Star: Get creative with our special Noel coloring sheets featuring our very own holiday horse!
  • Dashing Through the Giveaways: We'll be holding giveaway drawings all weekend, with a chance to win prizes and even some free Carousel rides!
