Dickens of a Christmas Scheduled in Downtown Edmond
By Tourism Industry Partner
Edmond, OK - There is a special excitement this year for “Dickens of a Christmas. A new gift has been placed under the Tree, a gift that not only will bring joy to the receivers, but will warm the heart of all who give. The gift is the “Festival of the Trees” which will be presented by The Downtown Edmond Business Association.
There will be 20-30 decorated trees and wreaths from the community at 10 S. Broadway. For those who feel they cannot provide a tree we are accepting large decorated wreaths. A silent auction will be held December 3rd and 4th with all proceeds from the event going to the Edmond Senior Center Meal Program, located at the MAC in Mitch Park.
Mayor Patrice Douglas has said “Your participation in the Festival of the Trees will provide a helping contribution that will allow long-term stability for this program”.
A Dickens of a Christmas will allow visitors to experience the wonder of the season as you step back in time. The celebration continues each weekend until Christmas with free Christmas Trolley rides, historic tours and musical entertainment. See our website for additional information including the Festival of The Tree Application for the community’s convenience for entering a tree or wreath in the silent auction. www.downtownedmondok.com
