    The Dickens Christmas event starts in a few weeks and I would like to see if any of you were planning on attending.
    If you have never been, it is a festival modeled after Victorian Era London with singing, dancing, vendors and steampunk exhibits and much more. You can dress up or come in civies. It lasts for several weekends and I plan on attending more than one, so maybe you could express you interest in this thread and we all could possibly meet up there.

    When: Starts Friday Nov 27 through Dec 20 on the weekends 11am to 7pm sunday

    Where: Cow Palace

    I'm planning to go this year. How about going the weekend of Nov 28? Weekends in Dec are already looking busy and I need to fit my bday in there somewhere.

    I don't know about the weekend of the 28th. That's Thanksgiving Day weekend, when everybody is off school and shopping and going out. It might be too crowded.

    I can bet you I'll be attending this year. I really want to get my costume finished. I started it two years ago, but never seem to actually get it completed (a silk victorian day dress). If I do finish the costume, it will be worn towards the end of December. But I'll go out of costume too since I'd like to be able to shop in the stores easily.

    Weekend of Thanksgiving is probably a no go.

    We may go Sunday... but David has not been feeling well. Anyway, Sat or Sun was our original plan for this weekend. I need to get inspired to finish my costume!

    We will probably be there on the 20th. Maybe the 13th.

    Haha, Tom saw me at Mad Sal's! I was right in front of him watching the show. I thought I'd run into you later Tom and take a photo of your Steampunk-ish outfit but I never saw you again.

    Sorry I didn't see you Rachel :(

    Our photos are here (David's are better than mine, his camera better equipped for the dark lighting there): http://imageevent.com/kay_dee/dickensfair/dickensfairsunnov29th2009

    I won't be able to go next weekend because of the Modesto Parade on Sat, and the San Jose parade on Sunday. I hope to go the Sunday after Eva's party if we don't stay out too late and my costume is done :)

    We were there from 11-3:30. We did see Alex real briefly. Sorry we missed you Kathy and Tom. I hope you guys had fun. My mom and I watched Punch and Judy, that was funny. [face_laugh]

    Yeah, we were there from about 11:30 to 3:30! Same time as you Rachel :) But the place is so packed, it's easy to miss people. It's amazing I ran into Alex and Tom!

    yes, but I doubt they'll do this again next year...


    just watch it... I'm sure you'll all LOVE it...






    if you are hesitant to click on it because you think it'll probably be boring, then think again... cause it's the Victorian dancers doing... THRILLER

    PS... I wonder if this is what Natalie Portmans gig will look like in Pride and Prejudice and zombies

    Ah darn, too bad. I went there in the afternoon as soon as I could. Got there around 3:00 and tried to stay until closing but was too tired so left around 7:30. I wish I could have seen more of the shows there this year. Oh well, there is always next year! I'll post my photos soon.
