by Home Page Staff - December 4, 2017

On today’s broadcast, we recap the 34th annual Dickens of a Christmas. This year’s event turned out to be one of the best with thousands of people coming to Wellsboro to celebrate Christmas in a Victorian Time Period setting. As you watch today’s feature, you will see a just a small sample of the fun and good times that took place at this year’s Dickens of a Christmas. It should give you a good idea of what it was like to be in one of the best small town settings in America to experience such an event.

This year’s celebration also included the second annual Dickens of a Christmas Best Dressed Contest. We cover those highlights in today’s feature as well.
