Grayson's Christmas in July coming soon

GRAYSON -- A yearly Christmas tradition in Grayson might not quite align with the season, but it doesn't make it any less popular.

The sixth annual Christmas in July is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 27 at the Grayson Arts and History Center, an event that offers Christmas deals five months before the holiday in an effort to help folks get a jump-start on the holiday season.

"We will have all kinds of trees, decorated and for sale, as well as table arrangements and ornaments," said Barbara Hinkle, arts and history center director. "It's a very popular event. People love it."

The gathering will also feature "cool ideas" for Christmas decorating and an early preview of new items as well as refreshments and musical entertainment.

For more information, call Hinkle at 678-985-7775.

The Grayson Arts and History Center is located at 2070 Rosebud Road in Grayson.
