Dickens on The Strand

Melissa Long is reflected in a mirror while walking through Dickens on The Strand in Galveston on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019. Long's Victorian-style dress is handmade.


The Galveston Historical Foundation announced late Wednesday night it is canceling its annual Victorian holiday festival Dickens on The Strand, just two weeks before the event was scheduled to occur.

Welp, I guess those letter writers who wanted an end to Galveston festivals are getting their way. Be careful what you ask for.

It sucks, but totally the right move. It will be back.
