Train rides, horse and buggy rides, Victorian-dressed Christmas carolers, a re-enactment of the Charles Dickens' play "A Christmas Carol" and visits with Santa were just a few of the highlights of the "Dickens in the Park" event held Saturday from 3-6 p.m. at the Hoxie City Park. Hundreds came out and enjoyed the festivities.

All activities were free, and refreshments were served at no charge. "This year, more than ever, we needed a dose of Christmas spirit," said Karen Williams, event organizer.
