Christmas in July at Elitch Gardens
Holly Jolly Dive-In Movie Benefits Toys For Tots

Denver, CO (July 21, 2015) – It may seem early to be getting into the holiday spirit, but in honor of its upcoming Dive-In Movie in the Water Park, featuring Elf on July 24th, Elitch Gardens is hosting Christmas in July. Not only will guests get to soak up the festive film while floating in the wave pool, but they will also have the opportunity to donate to a very special cause, Toys For Tots, in exchange for a coupon offering an admission ticket valid that day for just $19.99, a savings of $27.

Several Marines from the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots Program will be stationed at Elitch Gardens’ front gate on Friday, July 24th from 9:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. accepting new, unwrapped toy donations for this year’s Christmas giving season.

Guests can enjoy the all the rides and slides at the park throughout the day and continue the holiday fun with everyone’s favorite Christmas fanatic, Elf, featured in the Water Park that evening at 7:30 p.m.. Guests are advised to bring towels and blankets for open seating, which starts at 7 p.m.

While July may seem like an unusual time of year to hold a Christmas Toy Drive, both Toys For Tots and Elitch Gardens agree that it’s never too early to help out the less fortunate children in the community.

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. In doing so, Toys for Tots aims to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
