Greater Lafayette Commerce proudly presents the 16th Annual Dickens of a Christmason Saturday, December 7th, 2013 in downtown Lafayette—West Lafayette, Indiana.Experience the magic along the streets, inside the storefronts and in the brisk air.
Step back in time as downtown is transformed into Victorian England. The festivities run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
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.
