MOODY GARDENS GETS INTO THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT WITH CHRISTMAS IN JULY FESTIVITIES

Beat the heat with a chance to win your way into the Gulf Coast’s most enchanting holiday destination

Galveston, Texas (July 3, 2019) – Christmas has come early to Moody Gardens. Come celebrate all month long with exciting chances to win tickets to come back for the holiday season.

On Saturday, July 6 guests are invited to test endurance with the Ice Block Challenge. Compete against family and friends to see who can stay seated on a seat made completely out of ice the closest to five minutes. The winner of each competition will receive an Evening Pass to all of Moody Gardens’ holiday attractions.

On Sunday, July 7 Moody Gardens will be having a flash sale offering guests $5 off the purchase of an Evening Pass to all Moody Gardens holiday attractions. The Evening Pass offers guests entry into the Rainforest and Aquarium Pyramids, MG 3D and 4D Special FX Theaters, Arctic Slide, Colonel Paddlewheel Boat, Skate Rental, ICE LAND, Festival of Lights, Ropes Course and Zip Line after 3 p.m.

Also, every Saturday throughout the month of July from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Moody Gardens will be inviting guests to dive in with the Polar Plunge and have an icy cold plummet in a dunk tank. A photo booth will also be set up with props featuring some of the iconic landmarks from around the globe that will be featured in this year’s brand new ICE LAND theme, Christmas Around the World. Frosty treats will also be available to help guests beat the heat.

Thursdays in July will be designated as Food Drive Thursdays. Guests who bring a non-perishable food item to Moody Gardens will receive two-for-one admission to the MG 3D Theater. The summer food drive observes the holiday spirit of giving. The food drive program benefits the Galveston County Food Bank.
