Dickens on the Strand ran all weekend, but our tickets were for Saturday only. We had been warned of the lack of parking near the festival, but we actually found a lot where we could park for nothing. We had to shuffle up several blocks, but it was free!!

Strand Street holds many historically restored buildings housing gift and decor shops, bookstore, restaurants, clothing shops and other businesses. The entire length of the street was opened to pedestrians only with ticket booths strategically placed. Once inside the area, a Victorian village awaited!

Finely dressed Victorian gentlemen and ladies stolled the streets in couples or with babies in their prams and children at their side. Street musicians and carollers entertained at each street corner. Food booths lent an aromatic blend to the atmosphere by offering the sweet and the savory.
