39th Annual Dickens on the Strand Victorian Holiday Festival
Author Charles Dickens was definitely a rock star in his era. The 39th Annual Dickens on the Strand Victorian Holiday Festival celebrates both the writer and the Victorian era with a street festival, costumed characters (both Victorian and steampunk), handbell and choir concerts, food and gift vendors, entertainment, Steampunk Square and even bed racing. The author's great-great-great grand-daughter will also be on hand as the festival attempts a world-record birthday card signing for the 200th anniversary of Dickens's birth.
Sat., Dec. 1, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 2, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2012
