Dickens on the Strand Festival in Galveston, Texas

Since 1974, the Historic Galveston Strand transforms back to Victorian times one weekend each year as the island celebrates the Christmas Holidays with Dickens on the Strand. Parades, live entertainment, vendors and bed races are among the fun. Come on now, where else can you see bed races?!? This is a fun family-friendly festival with some fantastic people watching. Dress in a Victorian period costume and get discounted admission.

Dickens on the Strand is typically held during the first weekend in December and is hosted by the Galveston Historical Foundation. It's a great way to kick-off the holidays in historic Galveston. Put it on your list of festivals to experience.
