The 24th annual edition of Dickens Christmas opens at noon, Nov. 24, with the World's Smallest Christmas Parade. Charles Dickens and his entourage will meander down Fennell Street to Jordan Street to Genesee Street, ending on the porch of the Hannum House. Dickens Christmas continues every Saturday and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m., through Dec. 23, with an abbreviated production (noon to 2:30 p.m.) Dec. 24. Merriment for the whole family: scenes from "A Christmas Carol," sing-alongs, comedy juggling shows, horse-drawn carriage rides, and appearances by Queen Victoria, Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Father Christmas, Mother Goose and a cast of 70. Interactive street theater at its best! Produced by Scarlett Rat Entertainment and presented by Stifel, the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation and the Skaneateles-area business community.
