"Dickens of a Christmas Celebration"
Step back in time for Wellboro’s “Dickens of a Christmas” celebration. The community’s Victorian gaslights and live Christmas decorations lend the perfect setting for a host of community events which create a very special pre-Christmas celebration. Dickens traditionally includes craft and food vendors lining Main Street. Craft and specialty vendors in Victorian costume will offer handcrafted wooden items, ceramics, clay pottery, commemorative Christmas ornaments, wrought iron, wreaths and more. Tasty Dickensonian treats include pie tarts, hot cider, baked goods, candies, hot apple dumplings, hot soups, gingerbread cookies, baked potatoes, fresh roasted peanuts, handmade chocolates and more. The ever popular “Dickens Players,” roving performers dressed in proper Victorian attire, perform all manner of entertainment…presenting the humorous, the inspirational, the musical…in solos, pairs and groups. Local bands, choruses and dancers join in the fun as well. Special tours of local churches and historical buildings, story hours, a model train exhibit and Santa trains all add to the flavor of the event.
