A Dickens' Christmas
Post date: Dec 14, 2014 8:16:21 PM
Braving the crowds and the endless hunt for parking, my wife and I visited Skaneateles, NY to view their famous Dickens' Christmas celebration. More info about the event is here: http://www.skaneateles.com/visit/events-a-attractions/dickens-christmas
It really helped get everyone in the holiday mood and the characters were fabulous and accommodating to the visitors and shoppers (except Scrooge, of course!) I was able to grab a few photos - enjoy!
Charles Dickens, just before addressing the crowd.
The Ghost of Christmas Present.
A pair of London street urchins.
Constable 2nd Class, Morris Lounsbury sets a visitor straight.
Caroling at the town gazebo lead by Father Christmas, Queen Victoria, Lady Charlotte Anne, Duchess of Buccleuch, and a collection of other dignitaries.
Scrooge and another character look on, unimpressed by any of the festivities.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
