Whoever says Christmas should just be confined to the month of December each year has obviously never experienced the joy of Christmas In July!
Christmas in July is a celebration in Australia intending to mimic the northern hemisphere’s white wintery Christmas and Canowindra is now well known in the Shire for the Christmas in July window displays that the businesses create along Gaskill Street.
A number of licensed venues also hold traditional Christmas in July lunches and dinners which are always fun to attend and get into the spirit.
In the lead-up to the festive month, which starts next week, The Canowindra Phoenix are inviting all Canowindra businesses and anyone who owns a shop front in Gaskill St to participate in the Canowindra Phoenix Christmas In July Window Display Competition for 2020.
“Everyone in the Canowindra business community is invited to get creative and dress up their windows and there will be some great prizes for the best dressed window and people’s choice window,” said Roselea Rowston, The Phoenix Group of Newspapers General Manager.
With the wet wintry weather arriving this week it really does look like a winter wonderland in and around Canowindra.
“We are encouraging all businesses to dress their shops in Christmas themes for the month of July to bring our little village to life and attract new visitors to town, now that some COVID restrictions have lifted” continued Roselea.
If you need some help with your window why not pop in and see Tommy Jeffs from Montrose House who is always happy to help!
This year the Phoenix will also run a Children’s Colouring in Competition so all the children of Canowindra can get involved – keep an eye out for it in next week’s Phoenix!
