Dickens’ Christmas in Skaneateles, NY

With Christmas less than six weeks away what better way to get into the holiday spirit than planning a trip to Skaneateles, NY.  Be transported back in time to the day’s of candles in   the window and carolers on the town hall steps celebrating the Christmas season.

An annual tradition, the celebration begins the day after Thanksgiving and runs every Saturday and Sunday through December 24,  from noon to 4 pm. Charles Dickens and his cast of over 50 characters will interact with residents and visitors in the streets, stores and restaurants.  The event is for all ages, young and old and everyone in between.  Horse drawn wagon rides start the day or bring an end to a perfect afternoon.
