The parking lot overflowed across the street at CW Fudge Saturday, well before the "Christmas in July" celebration began at 1 p.m.

"I'm thrilled at the turnout today," co-owner William Tidball said. "Santa is here to help people sample our newest 'holiday' flavors. This helps us with the flavors we will carry through the Christmas holidays."

"We have 15 new flavors: Hazelnut Coffee, Chocolate Vanilla Caramel Swirl, Chocolate Chocolate Cookies and Cream, Cotton Candy, Red Velvet Whoopee Pie, Sour Cherry, Banana Split, Chocolate Caramel Cookie, Chocolate Rum Raisin with Walnuts, Boston Cream Pie, Caramel Vanilla Walnut, Mint Cookie, Chocolate Whoopee Pie, Peanut Butter & Jelly and Peanut Butter Cookies and Cream."
