And their eyes were filled with wonder and delight …… the tradition reigns and the holiday sparkles brighter than ever with the return of the Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center November 8-11.
Each year brings new festivities, crafters, artisans, exhibits and tours and this year is no exception. Better than ever as a must see-must do, the Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals provides something special for everyone in the family, from the tiniest of tots on Santa’s knee to Grandparents reliving the days of the strolling minstrel.
Step back in time into an ever-changing magical setting where shoppers delight and engage with 350 eager period clad vendors hawking their wares among the sites and sounds of a Victorian winter wonderland showcasing everything from fine arts and crafts, holiday decorations, homemade soaps & lotions, clothing, jewelry, imported items and more.
Surrounding a spectacular Christmas tree adorned for such a special occasion, everything is dressed and ready for your arrival, even the benches and lampposts are laden with snow. It is a holiday lover’s paradise tried and true with Roving Carolers in full Victorian Costume – Suzanne and Jim performing songs of the era, right down to antique instruments. As old Saint Nick visits nearby in his Victorian Castle benefiting the Fostering Hope charity, the child in all of us is encouraged to come alive.
While there, treat your family to one of the show’s oldest and most memorable exhibits - Santa through the Ages. Follow the transformation of Santa from Medieval Times through modern day. Wander through the Festival of Trees, an array of fifty magnificent Christmas trees, each dressed in its own unique holiday splendor shimmering, beautifully designed, and sold to benefit the local Sons of Italy charities.
Experience the Festival of Worlds where you’ll find traditions and foods of selected countries from around the world.
Other area attractions include Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland, the world’s largest drive thru fully synchronized LED light and music show. Also, enjoy The Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery at the House of Blues and a number of holiday theatre shows.
