From November 30th thru December 2nd, Port Jefferson Village hosted a unique celebration of all things “Dickens”. In the spirit of the well known story, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, the village was transformed to a bygone era with costumed characters, decorated streets and shops, carriage and trolley rides, lantern-lit historic house tours and special Christmas performances.
Island Christian Church Port Jefferson served as the hub for the characters as well as a venue for several festive concerts featuring members of our congregation. A beautiful choir sung traditional carols honoring the Lord and the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. A jazz ensemble helped create a fun and festive atmosphere, with standing room only!
The Dickens Festival is truly a one-of-a-kind event! Hope to see you all there next year.
