Celebrate The Holidays with a Victorian Christmas Celebration

Posted on Sunday, April 15, 2012


Kick off the holiday season at the 17th annual “A Dickens of A Christmas” Victorian Christmas celebration, which will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 30, from 6 to 9 p.m. in downtown Spartanburg.

The event will feature horse drawn carriage rides, roasted chestnuts, hand bell choirs, ballet dancers, characters from the Charles Dickens novel, living windows, holiday choirs, and the magical Denny’s Tree Lighting Ceremony.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony will get under way at 7:30 p.m. and will include a community sing-along of favorite Christmas songs.

The lobby of the Denny’s building will house a host of children’s activities, such as cookie decorating, ornament making and demonstrations of Victorian games. If you have little ones, be sure to stop in so they can participate.

Santa will have his sleigh parked in Morgan Square where children can pay a quick visit and have their photos taken.  Be sure to bring your cameras!

Also, stop by Carolina Cash, where your children can mail their wish list to Santa. If they have not already written their letter to Santa, they can do so at the store. Letters will be answered (by Santa himself) through the U.S. mail, and Carolina Cash will accept letters until Dec. 15.

“The Spartanburg Downtown Association is thrilled to be assuming sponsorship of this cherished Spartanburg tradition,” says Kathy Chandler, executive director.  ‘A Dickens of A Christmas’ fits perfectly with our mission of promoting downtown Spartanburg as an exciting place to live, work, visit and play.”
