Dickens of a Christmas

Dickens of a Christmas is a community tradition that signals the start of the Christmas season. The event is traditionally held on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. tarting with horse-drawn carriage rides around Richardson Park, there is a progression of family activities — from living windows to strolling carolers singing old standbys, food vendors, and Santa Claus. The highlight of the evening is always the lighting of Spartanburg’s official Christmas tree at 7:30 pm. The tree lighting event is presented by Denny’s, with entertainment provided by The Spartanburg Community Band. The event is free. Hot Chocolate, cider and food are available for purchase. There’s also lots of great shopping in the many downtown shops and from the artisans in the Christmas Market.
