Put on your holiday sweaters, some comfortable shoes, and don't forget the camera!
Head down to the Dickens Faire at the McHenry Mansion (15th Street, between I and J Streets), which will be decked out in its Victorian-era holiday splendor. Costumed carolers greet holiday revelers, stories of Christmases past will be shared with enraptured audiences, and children may decorate gingerbread houses, make ornaments, and create holiday cards. Another special treat: the Farmer's Market will be open and stocked with local fruits, nuts and veggies as well as some lunchtime fare.
Both the Dickens Faire and the Farmer's Market will be open from 9am to 3pm.
