2021 Dickens of a Christmas Highlights
After close investigation, authorities found something in the air in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, this past weekend, and it was very contagious. It was identified and confirmed as Christmas Joy!
The 2021 Dickens of a Christmas is now in the record books with an outstanding turnout as thousands gathered to enjoy some special Christmas fun! Bells were ringing, and people were literally dancing in the streets, celebrating the joy of Christmas.
This year’s Dickens of a Christmas featured some of the best festival food we’ve ever! There was laughter and singing, peanuts and crabcakes, vendors selling beautiful Christmas gifts, along with Wellsboro’s famous Main Street shopping.
After last year’s Dickens of a Christmas was canceled because of COVID-19, it seemed like attendees this year were busting out with smiles and good cheer. People seemed grateful to be able to get out and make some good memories with family and friends. And there were first-time attendees as well who came to Wellsboro for the Dickens Joy, complimenting the town on the great fun and Christmas spirit.
On today’s broadcast (above), Home Page Correspondent Havah Simcox had the opportunity to visit with several who attended. Wellsboro’s Dave Cox is honored, and the winners of this year’s Best Dressed Showcase are revealed. Don’t miss it!
Once again, The Best Dressed Showcase took place outside on the Deane Center Lawn, with Christine Moore of Christine A. Moore Millinery and John Vogt of The Home Page Network sharing the stage to introduce and highlight the outfits. Twenty-eight registration cards represented over 40 people joining in on the fun because those registrations included couples, groups, and singles.
A group picture in the video highlighted participants’ many colors and designs. Many rose to the occasion to snap a memory of history.
Home Page Vice-President Sara Vogt handed John the top ten names for the judges to begin the fun and wonderful task of choosing a gold and silver winner.
Our judges this year were Teresa Cupuzzo of Mountain Home Magazine, Jan Stiner, and Mary Dikun. Jan and Mary are both past winners in the Best Dressed Showcase. The ten were able to share why they chose the costume and the fun and enjoyment they received from entering the showcase.
The judges chose Linda Brown as the gold winner and Henry and Deb Bonson as the silver winner. They were both handed a basket filled with gifts and gift certificates for their enjoyment.
