  • Time: Dec. 3-5
On the first weekend in December, the majestic iron-front buildings found in Galveston’s historic downtown district become the perfect backdrop for the 48th annual Dickens on The Strand. This holiday street festival transforms the area, particularly Strand Street, into the Victorian London of Charles Dickens, complete with costumed characters, street performers and vendors, parades, and holiday food and drink.
