Visit The Dickens Festival and Holiday Craft Fair for some old-fashioned holiday spirit to start off the holiday season.
The Dickens Festival is known for its fun atmosphere, unique gifts and quality, and handmade merchandise. Interact with costumed characters from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and listen to roving Christmas Carolers gather several times throughout the day.
Pose for pictures with Father Christmas (Santa) on the steps of the Artisan Marketplace near the Christmas tree. Father Christmas is gentle, non-commercial and wonderful; visits with Father Christmas are free.
