I literally stumbled upon Riverside’s 21st annual Dickens Festival while I was downtown for a BLT and IPA (both yummy).
The festival is replete with costumed Dickensian characters and stagings of scenes from Dickens’ many works.
The festival covers about three blocks of booths, food, fun and camaraderie. If you’re anywhere near Riverside, I highly recommend that you “hie” yourself to the city before 5 p.m. Sunday (Feb. 23).
I’m right now attempting to buy tickets to the event’s Tea Time Tasties and Show with Mr. Treacle.
