DICKENS’ CHRISTMAS MARKET RETURNS TO DOWNTOWN LAKEPORT
The seventh-annual Dickens’ Christmas Market — an event that transforms downtown Lakeport into an old English village for a day full of festivities. Downtown Merchants and Market Vendors will be offering quality items for your Holiday Gift purchases.
Traveling to downtown Lakeport during Dickens’ Market is like traveling back through the centuries. Costume-clad characters from the 1800's stroll Main Street and welcome guests to browse the shops and enjoy the food and vendor booths. Event-goers are encouraged to arrive dressed for the occasion in period costumes and enter the costume contest for a chance at cash prizes. In order to get the real Dickens' feeling, please check out C&G enterprises on 3rd St. in Lakeport. They have a full line of costumes and accessories for rent.
Restaurants in downtown Lakeport offer delicious food for sale for the occasion, and a variety of tasty treats also are available at the King’s Food Court on Third and Main streets. Vendor booths along Main Street include arts and crafts, toys, and plentiful gift ideas for the holidays. Some Main Street merchants host their own booths featuring seasonal products and specialty holiday merchandise.
A full schedule of musical entertainers perform throughout the day and Christmas carolers and strolling minstrels entertain the crowds. In addition, Eleven Roses Ranch offer free “sleigh rides” through town on a seasonally adorned mule-drawn carriage.
Sutter Lakeside Hospital will once again sponsor Santa's Workshop, feathuring Santa Claus in Museum Park. There will also be activities and snacks for children. Santa's Workshop hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Christmas Lighted Parade begins at 6:00 p.m. Anyone may register for the parade; applications are available at the Lake County Chamber of Commerce or on our webpage.
