Dickens Days – A Christmas Celebration in Clinton
Dickens Days are a wonderful way to start your holiday season that will delight and entertain all families. Clinton will become an early Victorian marketplace featuring all types of delectable wares for eating and drinking, as well as delightful gift items for wearing or enjoying. The town is decorated for the holidays with lots of twinkling lights, holiday greens and the famous Clinton Bridge lined with toy soldiers. There will be musical performers that will entertain and delight shoppers with their renditions of Christmas readings and carols. As you stroll about, it’s not uncommon to stumble upon Charles Dickens, Santa Claus and even old Scrooge himself.
