    Brush off your bowlers and prepare your petticoats as Galveston Historical Foundation presents the 46th annual Dickens on The Strand. Held the first weekend in December, the annual festival is a holiday tradition with great family programming, live entertainment, special events and more.

    The annual holiday street festival, based on 19th-century Victorian London, features parades, non-stop entertainment on four stages, new additions like Tiny Tim’s Play Land, Shopkeeper Skills Village, and roaming characters throughout the festival. Costumed vendors peddle their wares from street stalls and rolling carts laden with holiday food and drink, Victorian-inspired crafts, clothing, jewelry, holiday decorations and gift items.

    Discounted tickets for GHF members are available for $10 in advance or $12 at the gate. Please call 409-765-3405 for member details.

    Tickets are non-refundable and good for a single day's admission. Admission for Fezziwig's Friday, December 5 from 5-9 p.m., is free to the public.
