Dickens Christmas in Skaneateles — Weekends Nov. 23-Dec. 24

Facebook

There is perhaps no better author of Christmas tales than Charles Dickens. He is most known for his classic “A Christmas Carol”, and throughout the country festival organizers put on “Dickens Christmas” festivals. Skaneateles is one in New York.

Skaneateles Dickens Christmas runs weekends beginning Nov. 23 through Dec. 24. It starts with “The World’s Smallest Christmas Parade” at noon the day after Thanksgiving. Then, it’s a month of Dickensian celebration, with period costumes, themed activities and plenty of events for all to enjoy.

Charles Dickens and his cast of over 50 characters will interact with residents and visitors in the streets, stores and restaurants. Don’t miss lively acts at the Library (and Mother Goose too!), live music, unique shopping, wonderful food and carriage rides around the Village.
