26 Nov 2022
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - A small town in North Dakota hosts a Christmas gem every weekend from now until Christmas weekend, bringing us back in time to the days of Charles Dickens.
Garrison, North Dakota is known for many summer activities like hunting, fishing, and camping, but when the holiday season comes around, the Dickens Festival attracts thousands to this small town.
“Well, I started in 1994 with the festival, it was introduced by two ladies that thought we should have a Dickens Festival in the middle of winter in North Dakota, who would have guessed that it would have succeeded so well,” said Dick Messerly, Queen Elizabus Tour Guide.
