Annual Dickens Christmas

Annie 12/09/2015



Dickens Christmas Festival


I joined a Carpe Diem motor coach tour with 40 other guests to attend the 22nd annual Dickens Christmas event in Skaneateles.  Skaneateles, NY is a quaint town sprinkled with posh shops, unique finds and plenty of places to grab a bite to eat.  During the holiday season many go to celebrate a Dickens Christmas where you could run into a cast of carolers, visit with Scrooge and even Santa (or shall I say Father Christmas) himself!


We left promptly at 9am from Henrietta and along the hour and half drive we were treated to holiday themed games, comfortable seating and great conversation.  When we arrived in Skaneateles we had time to explore the shops (my favorite part), grab lunch, be entertained by the Dickens characters or take a stroll down the pier.  After we had our fill of the fabulous town we headed back on the comfortable motor coach for a short ride to the Spaghetti Warehouse.  I hadn’t been to the Spaghetti Warehouse in years but it was always one of my favorite spots as a child and again I wasn’t disappointed.  We had a large list of entrées to choose from as well as bread, salad and cheesecake.  After dinner we checked out to Lights on the Lake on nearby Onondaga lake.  I wasn’t sure what to expect but was absolutely blown away by the displays. 


 The tour was a great success, entirely worry and stress free!  It was so nice to have your day laid out for you.  The staff was very professional and made sure every detail was thought through and planned out. I can’t wait to join another great tour with Carpe Diem travel!
