Holly Dickens Festival

When: Sat., Dec. 6, Sun., Dec. 7, Sat., Dec. 13 and Sun., Dec. 14 2014

Forty-one years strong, the Holly Dickens Festival’s opening on Friday features a lighted parade, tree-lighting ceremony, and Santa Claus. After that, you get three full weekends of themed activities throughout downtown Holly, including sledding, readings, games, and carriage rides. Hey, that’s a lot better than just getting your pocket picked by the Artful Dodger.
