Houston holiday events: Dickens on the Strand

See also

The Texas Renaissance Festival may have come and gone, but the historical celebrations aren’t over. For a delightful combination of history and holidays look no further than Dickens on the Strand, a Victorian-themed Christmas celebration held every year in Galveston, Texas.

The event runs until the end of the weekend, so there's still a chance to enjoy live bands, ample food, and holiday shopping. This weekend promises to be on the chilly side, adding to the authentic feel of a Christmas wonderland. Feel free to attend in costume and, while in the Galveston area, enjoy other exciting attractions, such as the Moody Gardens, which is currently featuring its Festival of Lights.
