Christmas in July brings unique shopportunities to those who visit Greensburg this coming Saturday, July 24.

The annual Christmas in July Arts, Crafts, and Vendor Show in happening again this year in Greensburg on July 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is forecasted to be a hot day, but the Greensburg Rec Center at 600 S. Main St is an air conditioned building, and there will be food vendors present all day. Lighthouse Worship Center is responsible for the planning and coordinating of the event, according to Pam Wagner, who served multiple roles at the church. This is a free event for people to attend, and there are 32 booths that will be selling various goods. There will also be door prizes every 15 minutes. These prizes are all things vendors have chosen to donate. If a vendor donated a door prize, their booth fee was reduced. This is a ministry opportunity for the Lighthouse Worship center. 

"The money that we receive from our booth fees go to missions and ministries of our church," said Wager. 

Cindy Pyatt will be offering cinnamon rolls, breakfast burritos, bierocks, hamburgers, Frito Pie, chips, drinks, and desserts. The proceeds from this will go to the Boys and Girls Missionary Crusade, which provides missionaries with educational material to teach children about Jesus. 

They are not currently taking anymore vendors because they have a full building right now. This is up from last year, when there were only around 18.
