Description:

Since 1986, Beginning at 9:00 a.m., the food and craft vendors, strolling musicians and singers, dancers, and street-corner thespians will spread up and down Main Street, extending onto Waln and Crafton Street, and a portion of Central Avenue. Performers and vendors will be appropriately costumed and decorated to create a Victorian atmosphere that fits so well with the Wellsboro Gas Lights. The Wellsboro Men's and Women's Choruses traditionally perform in front of the Arcadia Theater, and you're welcome to sing along. Several other local musical groups typically offer strolling performances throughout the day.Many of our local churches will host luncheons, concerts, tours or special services throughout the day. Hamilton Gibson Productions will present "A Christmas Carol" at the Arcadia Theater several times, and the Hamilton Gibson Choirs will perform on Friday evening. Reservations are recommended.Last year, over 175 craft and food vendors lined the streets dressed in Victorian garb to present many unique gift-giving options.Bring a candle and join us for the Peace Walk from Packer Park at 5:00 p.m., which travels up Main Street to the Green for the annual community Christmas tree lighting and carol sing at 5:30.
