Historic Downtown Fayetteville is again being transformed into a Victorian-era experience, so roll back the clock for "A Dickens Holiday"! Horse-drawn carriages ride down Hay Street, children pose with Father Christmas for pictures, the smells of cider and gingerbread permeate the chilly air, and there is Ebenezer Scrooge himself, pursued by the ghost of Jacob Marley. As darkness approaches and the clock reaches 5:00 p.m., townspeople gather for the candlelight procession to the Market House, followed by fireworks. Afterward, the festivities continue on the streets and inside the Arts Council building, at "Annie's Alehouse." More information may be found on the event website.
