Christmas in July 2020

On Saturday, July 25, 2020, the Athens Business Association in conjunction with Valley Sno Co. will be hosting a Christmas in July event in Downtown Athens!

The event will feature sales and activities from several local businesses and organizations, as well as a visit from Santa Claus! The idea was started by one of Athens's latest additions to our downtown storefronts, Valley Sno Co., a locally owned gourmet Louisiana-style 'sno-ball' stand that had its start on the mobile front. Valley Sno Co. will be hosting a summer snowball fight in the park. The snowballs will be provided by the business, which can be reserved at the rate of $5 for 10 snowballs by contacting Valley Sno Co.

In addition to Santa and the snowball fight, local businesses will be holding sales and participating in their own ways. Local music store Yale's Music Shop will be offering 10% off any new and in-stock guitar, Children's Depot will be having a buy one get one 1/2 off on clothing, and be sure to check the sidewalk in front of SHEA Creations & Company for their sidewalk sale from 10-3!

Athens also welcomes to the event several additional activities and pop-ups that are stopping by! Heather Hanson, an independent Zyia Athletic Wear Rep, will be set up outside of Urban Connection, SHEA Creations & Company will be having a Card Class (preregistration with the shop is required), and the Rise and Shine Community Center invites you into the center for candy canes and crafts! Five Dollar Books, a mobile bookstore started by local entrepreneur Basil E. Bacorn that donates 75% of its profits annually to give back to the community, will be set-up inside the Rise and Shine Community Center as well and the Spalding Memorial Library will be having a book sale at their location.

Stop by and support local! We hope it will be a fun and socially distant event for everyone!
