The Annville-Cleona Community Pool took a unique approach to beating the summer heat by staging a Christmas in July event.

The sparkling Christmas displays were put together for the July 25 event by Darrel Moyer of Cleona, who took up Frank Weihrauch Jr’s mantle locally and provides the community with an annual (and extraordinary) Christmas lights display.

For the Christmas in July event, the pool and concession stand were open until 10pm, given folks some extra time to enjoy the lights (and of course, some Christmas music to go along with them).

Christmas in July was last held at the pool two years ago. Unfortunately, last year’s edition was cancelled due to flooding.

Below, you can find pictures of the event and a video walk-through that should whet your Christmas lights whistle until after Thanksgiving.

Plans for next year’s Christmas in July are already in the works!
