It’s Christmas in July on Roscoe

No, we’re not talking about folks who still haven’t taken down their holiday decorations. We’re talking about a visit from the main man himself.

He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good, and not just in December. That’s right, jolly old St. Nick will be roaming Roscoe Village this Thursday, July 19, checking up on who’s been naughty and nice and maybe, just maybe, bringing a blast of arctic North Pole air with him.

Of course, we all know what Santa’s really about — shopping. Nearly 20 stores along Roscoe Street will keep late-night hours on Thursday, offering refreshments, deals on merchandise and services, and a chance to glimpse a strolling Santa until 9 p.m. The event continues Saturday and Sunday with a sidewalk sale.

The list of participating shops: Spex, A Pied, Crush, Kickin’, Fixture, City Olive, Glam to Go, Hubba-Hubba, Little Threads, The Denim Lounge, Roscoe Village Bikes, Cinnamon Boutique, August House Studio, D Spa & Pet Boutique, Designs by Guzzardos, and Village Paperie & Gifts.
