Are you coming to our Christmas in July flash mob? We certainly hope so! The first 36 people to sign up get to ride the Carousel while we all sing along to a rousing rendition of Jingle Bells.

Even if it’s only in our hearts and minds.\n\nSo throw on some of your favorite Christmas togs, and plan to join us Wednesday, July 17th, at 11:30 a.m. in the park.\n\nAnd for those of you who want some caroling practice, here’s the song we’ll be singing along with.\n\n\nLyrics\n\nDashing through the snow\nIn a one-horse open sleigh\nO’er the fields we go\nlaughing all the way\nBells on bobtail ring\nMaking spirits bright\nWhat fun it is to ride and sing\nA sleighing song tonight!\n\n(chorus)\nJingle bells, jingle bells,\nJingle all the way.\nOh! what fun it is to ride\nIn a one-horse open sleigh.\nJingle bells, jingle bells,\nJingle all the way;\nOh! what fun it is to ride\nIn a one-horse open sleigh.\n\nA day or two ago\nI thought I’d take a ride\nAnd soon my laddy boy\nwas sitting by my side,\nThe horse was lean and lank\nMisfortune seemed his lot\nwe got into a drifted bank\nAnd we? we got upset\n\n(chorus)\n\nNow the ground is white\nSo go it while you’re young,\nTake the girls tonight\nand sing this sleighing song;\nJust get a bobtailed nag\nTwo forty for his speed\nThen hitch him to an open sleigh\nAnd crack! you’ll take the lead.\n\n(chorus)\n\nHey, and don’t forget about the Scavenger Hunt!\n\nHave you found the secret scrambled message in the park yet?

Another Monday, another month. And the summer seems to be floating by. Are you having a case of the summer doldrums yet? One day blurring into the next and the next and the next?\n\nWell, we were idly surfing the web the other day and discovered July is Anti-Boredom Month. Perfect timing, we thought! So if you’re one of our fans on Facebook (and we hope you are!), be on the look out for tips and tricks to combat those “I’m bored!” family moments this month.\n\nOne major anti-boredom antidote that we know of is the California State Fair. It’s running July 12-28 over at Cal Expo. There are seventeen days of excitement to choose from, so be sure to take the family out for a day of big fun. You can check out the details on their site, and start planning now. That’s what we’re going to do!\n\nAnd, of course, we have our own in-park remedies for the boredom blues. Make sure to take a peek at our Events page to see what we’ve got going on in the park this month. From a scavenger hunt to $10 Tuesdays to Happy Mondays to Christmas in July, there’s something for everyone. We’re out to rock this month!\n\nSo we hope your July is full and fun-packed! And don’t forget to check out our anti-boredom ideas on Facebook and share some of your own. We’d love to hear what tips you’ve got up your collective sleeves.\n\nWe look forward to seeing you in the Park soon!\n\n** And don’t forget this 4th of July military personnel and their family get to ride FREE all day. Come celebrate Independence Day with a bang!
