Event Description:
Since 1991, parts of downtown Lafayette are briefly transformed into scenes from Victorian England in the mid-1800's, as local thesbians enact scenes from Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". Come watch Pegasus Entertainment tell the story of Ebenezer Scrooge with this joyously spirited and entertaining ghost story that ends with an uplifting and heartwarming message. Performances are at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm & 3:00 pm in the 5th Street Farmers Market Area, where both Lafayette Vintage Brass Band and Jeff Anderson & Friends will entertain you between performances. Town Criers will be announcing the upcoming Performances. While you are waiting for the next performance to begin, stop in and purchase Holiday gifts from the talented Craft Vendors in the Merchant booths at the Christmas Village Market displaying their Holiday crafts and products for sale. Maybe pick up a one of a kind hand-made Candy Cane at McCords' Candies, or watch a Gingerbread House be constructed at Kathie's Kandies, or go in Main Street Books to pick up a good mystery novel, or stroll through Artists Own to find a beautiful and unique piece of art or jewelry. Take time to grab a bite to eat from one of the fantastic restaurants downtown! You could enjoy a burger and beer, or a glass of fine wine and some foie gras, or a soft drink and sandwich... it is all available in the wonderful variety of eateries in Downtown Lafayette! To add to the spirit of Victorian England, there will be Free Hay Wagon rides, and the roving Dickens Carolers will also performing scenes from "A Christmas Carol" at Duncan Hall and from 11th Street to Riehle Plaza, so you are sure to catch it wherever you go in Downtown! This is a great opportunity to shop for any of those last minute gifts, or just to come downtown and enjoy one of the many specials that will be offered by the downtown restaurants, coffee houses, and bars! And you can always enjoy a free wagon ride to your next downtown destination, as this is the final Saturday in the Shop Downtown Lafayette Series. Don't forget to bring your shopping list!
