Put-in-Bay Christmas in July Celebration

Share Button

Woman Watching the Sunset on Lake ErieOne of the best and most popular places for a Sandusky resident to visit in the summer is Put-in-Bay.  If you need a vacation but don’t want to go far from home, you’re in luck because this island is just a short boat ride away.

This unique island isn’t very big, but the amount of activities that one person can take part it makes it feel like a city.  Put-in-Bay is dotted with historic homes, the nation’s third tallest monument, plenty of quaint restaurants, and local pubs.

That’s not to mention all the events that take place on the island throughout the summer.  July is one of the most exciting months, with fireworks on the fourth and a celebration of Canada Day.  One of the best events on the island is Put-in-Bay’s 12 Days of Christmas in July.

This special event puts you right back in December, without the cold wind and snow.  The island businesses deck out their shops and restaurants with red and green, tinsel, and other Christmas theme.

Food and drink specials that are only served in the winter months make an appearance on menus, like eggnog.  There is live entertainment all twelve days and the downtown area will be covered in twinkling lights.

So, if you’re craving a taste of winter this July in Sandusky — or just a few days on the edge of Lake Erie —make a reservation at a hotel in Put-in-Bay.  Find more information about this event and others on the Put-in-Bay website.
