You Can’t Miss This Old World Dickens Festival In Texas This Holiday Season
Most of us are familiar with Galveston’s annual Dickens on the Strand, but did you know that the Hill Country town of Boerne hosts a similar celebration? This year marks the 18th consecutive year of Dickens on Main, an absolutely enchanting holiday festival that transports you back to the Victorian age of England. There’ll be caroling, horse-drawn carriage rides, a parade, food, shopping, and much more. So put together your best Dickens costume and come join in the fun this coming Friday and Saturday!
