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. That’s right, we’re going to blast the music over the Carousel speakers, so the whole park can hear!

Come on, it’ll be fun! And who couldn’t do with a little cool December frivolity in the middle of a hot summer? Even if it’s only in our hearts and minds.

So throw on some of your favorite Christmas togs, and plan to join us Wednesday, July 17th, at 11:30 a.m. in the park.

And for those of you who want some caroling practice, here’s the song we’ll be singing along with.

Lyrics

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
laughing all the way
Bells on bobtail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

(chorus)
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago
I thought I’d take a ride
And soon my laddy boy
was sitting by my side,
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
we got into a drifted bank
And we? we got upset

(chorus)

Now the ground is white
So go it while you’re young,
Take the girls tonight
and sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bobtailed nag
Two forty for his speed
Then hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you’ll take the lead.

(chorus)
