Do you know how Christmas in July started? Online there are many stories, one came from North Carolina back in 1933. An all-girls camp director came up with Christmas in July as a fun activity for the campers. The day included carolers, a Christmas Tree, fake snow made from cotton and of course Santa Claus. The campers would hang their laundry bags outside their cabin to be filled with candy overnight. Gifts were crafty and handmade. Eventually the elves, reindeer and Mrs. Santa Claus were included. This tradition is carried on across many camps and campgrounds today.
With the Spirit of Christmas in July, we are now booking Holiday Parties. We have packages for all size groups and budgets. We have two beautiful ballrooms, the Crystal Room, our larger ballroom can hold up to 500 guests, the Terrace Room is our smaller ballroom and can accommodate up to 175 guests while the Butler Room can host up to 50 guests.
Need ideas for your party, why not give it a theme! This is a wonderful way to break the ice with employees or relatives you may not know very well. Themed parties bring out the creativity in people!
Whichever way you decide to host your party, formal, laid back or themed, our staff is ready to help you!
