Come celebrate a "Dickens Christmas" on Covington's Court Square this weekend | Arts & Culture
December 10 & 11, 2011, come to Covington’s Court Square for a magical and unique Christmas celebration.
Members of the community will be bringing Charles Dickens' story "A Christmas Carol" to life!
The town square will be transformed to resemble a Christmas setting of mid 19th century Victorian England.
Although Charles Dickens penned "A Christmas Carol" in 1843, it did not become popular in the United States until the late 1860s but its influence can be found in many of the Christmas traditions we celebrate today.
Colorful characters such as Tiny Tim, Scrooge, Marley's ghost can be found mingling with merchants an vendors dressed in historical attire around the square.
Delight your senses with Christmas carolers, musicians, street performers, story telling and puppet shows while you explore the shops around the square that are all decked out in their Victorian Chriwstmas finery.
Enjoy some of the traditional English fare offered by our restaurants.
There will be plenty of activities for the entire family to enjoy throughout the day and the event is free to all.
If you would like to be a part of this exciting event on December 10 and 11, 2011, please make plans to attend or if you would like to be a part of the planning and making it come alive, then call the Chamber of Commerce at 901-476-9727 to volunteer!
