Dickens of a Christmas in Lafayette, Indiana
EVENTS SPONSORS

DECEMBER 5TH, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Greater Lafayette Commerce
Proudly presents the 18th annual Dickens of a Christmas.
Step back in time as downtown is transformed into Victorian England. Throughout the day, there will be live performances by choirs and entertainers, roving carolers, a Holiday Farmers Market, Riverside Skating Rink sessions, artisans in costume demonstrating their craft, carriage rides and of course, the Dickens and Victorian street characters!  Meet the Dickens characters as they enact the last scene from A Christmas Carol at Riehle Plaza and join in the Community Sing as we officially “kick off” the holiday season by “flipping the switch” to light the Courthouse Dome, Riehle Plaza, Big Four Depot, and the Community Tree.

Downtown restaurants will be open for dinner, and many downtown merchants will stay open late to allow for additional shopping opportunities.
