Disclosure: I was invited to a complimentary bloggers Paint and Sip crafting night out at The Shabby Palette to learn more about Dickens on Main. I also received a gift bag from the vendors participating in Dickens on Main. However all opinions are my own.
When I imagine a picture perfect Christmas season, visions of snow, sledding, Christmas carolers, bundling up in coats and scarfs and sipping hot chocolate all pop into my head. A small town main street all decorated for the holidays and sharing the magic of Christmas with my littles. With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays and the simple fact we are in South Texas we don't often get the snow and sledding part of the holidays down here.
That is unless you head just a few miles down the road into Boerne for Dickens on Main. There you can stroll down historic downtown and be taken back in time to experience some real Christmas magic.
There will be plenty of keep the littles entertained while you are able to shop in some of the adorable quaint boutiques along main street. Some kids activities I know we'll be checking out are:
- Petting Zoo
|Say what? A snake? My bigger two littles would LOVE that!|
- Make classic Christmas tree ornaments for all the kids (1 to 101!)
- A visit with Santa
- Snow machines up and down Main Street!
How awesome does this sound? Big enough even the kids at heart can join in with enough sleds to make sure the fun doesn't slow down. If you have littles, don't worry, you'll be able to slide down along with them!
No littles? No problem there is plenty for the grown up kids-at-heart too!
You'll find Ice Sculpture Shows in the South Pole Plaza with these beautiful pieces crafted right before your eyes.
The fan favorite "A One-Man Christmas Carol" will return with six performances. Between shows there will be other entertainment as well. You can also enter the Dickens Costume contest.
Friday night will feature the Lone Star Swing Orchestra at the North Pole Plaza. Saturday will featuring the Dickens On Main headlining event with Two Tons of Steel!
Turns out my visions of a picture perfect Christmas aren't just visions but can be found just right down the street (well depending on the weather maybe without the coat and scarfs - it's chilly now but you never know it could warm up again!)
Dickens on Main is celebrating it's 15th year and will run from 10am to 10:30 pm on November 28th and 29th on Main St. in Boerne.
