Ebensburg Christmas Parade
At the Ebensburg Christmas Parade
On December 4, I attended the Ebensburg Christmas parade and celebration. The town of Ebensburg was decorated for the Charles Dickens themed Christmas celebration.
The Christmas parade came down North Center Street. Ebensburg was easy to get to off of Route 22. It took about an hour and a half from Pittsburgh.
Inside the fire station there was a craft show, restrooms, food, program guides for the weekend in Ebensburg, and a place to get warm!
Additionally, there were many fun and free things to do during the weekend including a tour of the old prison, craft shows, horse drawn carriage rides, model train displays, ice sculptures, a visit by Santa Claus, Mrs. Buck's sweet shop inside the Ebensburg Historical Society home, and so much more! Ebensburg did a great job of providing a fun and safe celebration!

DECEMBER 3 - 5, 2010
Ebensburg’s 5th annual Dickens of a Christmas is a family-oriented Christmas celebration presented in a 19th Century setting, based on Charles Dickens and the Victorian-era. Ebensburg transforms into Victorian England where vendors, entertainers and other participants, are clad in period costumes. Let us be your host on this journey back in time to experience an old-fashioned Christmas.
Come enjoy sleigh and carriage rides, Victorian teas, three craft shows, trackless train rides, holiday concerts, and wassailing in quaint neighborhoods! There will also be dancing, roving entertainers and carolers, and so much more!
This is truly a joyous way to bring in the holiday season, of which Mr. Dickens would surely approve!
