Eakins Oval becomes a winter wonderland for Christmas in July

    On Friday tinsel decorations, fake snow and an ‘ice’ rink were placed in juxtaposition to the backdrop of the typical Philadelphia summer decor on Eakins Oval.

    People visiting the Parkway for the Christmas in July event were treated to family-friendly games and activities, tunes by DJ Royale and an evening of outdoor movie screening.

    Crowds also enjoyed a beautiful evening at the pop-up beer garden adjacent to the Oval.

    The Christmas in July event was hosted by Philadelphia Parks and Recreation.
