For the last two years, Gibsonville Recreation & Parks Department's Christmas in July event has been rained out.

"We haven't gotten to do it yet," said Heidi McBride with the Gibsonville Parks & Recreation Department. "Each year, I've been on the Town Green trying to get the activities ready and a wild storm will blow through."

McBride is hoping that's not the case on Saturday.

Weather permitting, Christmas in July will begin at 7 p.m. in downtown Gibsonville. Streets will be closed down at 6 p.m. It will feature cornhole, activities and games, along with visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Although the forecast is calling for 90-degree weather, McBride said there will be "snow" at this event, thanks to a snow machine.

"Arthur Christmas" will be shown at dusk. Participants should bring blankets and/or chairs because seating won't be provided.

Create a tacky Christmas T-shirt and you could be eligible to win a prize.

"It's our spin on the tacky Christmas sweater contest," she said.

In case of rain, "Arthur Christmas" will be shown at the Gibsonville Community Center, 314 Tenth St., Gibsonville.
