christmas in july

Christmas may be five months out, but that’s no reason we can’t get the party started early. Head to Ocean Casino Resort on Thursday, July 25 (exactly five months from Christmas Day) for a Christmas in July celebration — complete with all the magic of the holidays — smack in the middle of summer.

1 The Boardwalk Pool is the place to be. It may be toasty out, but that won’t stop the snow flurries (thanks to a snow making machine). Sip on holiday-themed drinks poolside, snap some photos with Santa and float along on festive pool floats while a DJ mixes holiday music. Tis the season for a summer holiday party.

2 Festive cocktails are a must. Summer is all about the margaritas. So why not celebrate the best of both worlds — summer and Christmas — with a White Christmas Margarita? Enjoy one at the Lobby Bar and the Boardwalk Pool. You’ll be merry and bright in no time.

3 The shopping will be holiday worthy. Missing all those holiday sales that come up in December? Shops at The Row at Ocean will feature a variety of sales and specials so you can start that holiday shopping — or holiday shopping for yourself — nice and early!

4 The post-Christmas event might make the naughty list. Santa might be coming to town, but not everyone got the memo. Head to the Pro Fighters League MMA event where a full lineup of featherweights and lightweights will be taking the ring. The card includes over twenty MMA fighters and starts at 5:30 p.m.

5 When it’s all over, cozy up to the speakeasy. After a long day of celebrations and merriment, there’s nothing better than the post-Christmas cocktail. Head to 1927 Lounge and Speakeasy to make your own spirits bright with a fabulous cocktail and live entertainment at this new 1920s-themed hot spot.
