Dickens On The Strand 2015

It's that time of the year for my favorite Christmas event in the Houston area, Dickens on the Strand. A place where the ghost of Christmas present  and the ghost of Christmas past get together. And the Strand on Galveston Texas transforms into the sights and sounds of a Victorian Christmas. Steampunk plays a big part and Steampunk square is always bustling with shoppers as it was this year.

Performers and Carolers are everywhere at Dickens on the Strand.

A favorite stop is each year is the confederate Army Camp
Public Service workers in health and law enforcement - Victorian Style 
There was a special event at Dickens this year, a couple renewed their vows. 
St. Nick always makes an appearance. 

And the Beefeaters

And you can't have Dickens on the Strand without the Bed Races
