A Dickens Holiday

November 25, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Down with Black Friday, go back in time before it existed with us and Maya decked out in Dickens style! On Friday, Nov. 25, 2016, Historic Downtown Fayetteville will again be transformed into a unique and wonderful experience. So roll back the clock with us ­for A Dickens Holiday from 1 to 9 p.m.!

Horse-drawn carriages roll down Hay Street carrying shoppers the old-fashioned way, past merchants’ windows adorned with beautiful Victorian holiday decorations, past artisans and vendors of all sorts of delightful treats. Joyful children pose with Father Christmas for memory-laden 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 p.m., townspeople gather in front of the Arts Council for the candlelight procession to the Market House, followed by fireworks. After the fireworks, the festivities continue until 9 p.m.
