...a new tradition begins: the Dickens Christmas Festival.
Southport's first-ever Charles Dickens Festival, set for Friday and Saturday will transform Southport's historic district into Victorian London, complete with strolling carolers, storytellers and numerous other performers.
The two-day festival consists of 50 events, including Christmas tree and gingerbread house contests in addition to holiday plays, musicals, Dickens vignettes and impersonators. Each day's activities are scheduled from 1-9 p.m.
Hopefully it will become as successful as Galveston, Texas's Dickens-On-The-Strand festival. Southport is one of my favorite towns in coastal NC.
