The Star 101.3 radio station invites you to share warmth and spread cheer at its Fifth Annual Dickens Holiday Festival. Sun., Nov. 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., you can step into Victorian times at Longfellows Inn and Restaurant. As a magical prelude to the holiday season, you can shop local merchants in the English Market, enjoy one-day-only "Dickens Deals," and sample holiday foods. Vendors will set up shop both upstairs and downstairs, featuring jewelry, makeup, gift items, stocking stuffers, toys, trains, and gift certificates.
Santa Claus will be available for pictures with children. Kids can also write letters to Santa and color. Holiday carolers as well as Scrooge and Tiny Tim will stroll about.
You can help those less fortunate by bringing a toy for Toys for Tots or canned goods for the Economic Opportunity Council food pantry. Admission is $8, and children 8 and under are free. The Saratoga Hospital Foundation will receive 25 percent of the admission.
