Hoxie 'Dickens in the Park'
event deemed a huge success
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.
