Dickens on Main
Dickens On Main is a FREE family event that brings tidings of good cheer to Boerne. This November is their 15th annual premier Christmas event. Stroll with loved ones through a decorated historic downtown, along the Hill Country Mile, while the sights and sounds of the weekend fill you with holiday joy. Instead of spending time maneuvering through the crazy crowds of Black Friday…support your local small town shops and buy your christmas presents with friends and family. In the past this event has occurred over two weekends so make sure you make time to come this time!
This family-friendly festival is the highlight of the season where traditionally 10,000 people descend on one of the best small towns in America! Streets are doused with real snow and a 60 foot ice slide carved by hand!

I had the great opportunity to listen to some of the volunteers working on this event and the planning started before the summer. The entire town is supporting it. There are arts and crafts activities that kids can do while they’re there or or take with them. Really quality crafts too, any queen of Pinterest would be happy. (Saving you time from having to search Pinterest yourself and find the crafts…)
