Travel back in time as Main Street is transported back to the 19th Century for this special holiday event in historic downtown Smithville, Texas. Celebrate the life and legacy of Charles Dickens but with a Texas Twist as you explore the local history of this area during this time period. The family-centered event will feature an ice-skating rink, street vendors and carolers in period costume, train rides, historical displays and performances, live music, theme-based food options, a Cowboy Corner, and lots of holiday shopping.

Join in the fun by dressing in Victorian costume, Western wear or just come as you are.

Admission for the event is free for everyone, but certain activities like the ice skating rink, food vendors, and shops will charge for their services.
