Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® presents:
"A Christmas Carol" Stroll

Time: Wednesdays during Christmas Traditions (6:00 PM to 8:30 PM)  | 11/29 12/6, 12/13, 12/20

After enjoying all of your favorite Saint Charles Christmas Traditions® programming on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, we welcome you to join us on Wednesday evenings for a new Dickensian affair. Behold as our Main Street USA is transformed into the foggy streets of 1840s London where you are invited to enter the world of Charles Dickens’ enduring holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. Become a part of the story as memorable scenes and characters hop off the page and come to life before your very eyes. Walk in the footsteps of Ebenezer Scrooge as you experience his adventures with the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet-to-Come first hand. 

Follow the path through the historic district as the plot unfolds. Keep a sharp lookout for surprises as you have run-ins with a variety of unique citizens of Victorian England (including lamplighters, music hall performers, nineteenth century toy vendors, and perhaps even her majesty Queen Victoria herself)!

Along the way, be sure to collect the six commemorative “Chapter Cards” that will retell the abbreviated tale of A Christmas Carol
