ST. GEORGE – Those who wanted to know what it was like to walk the streets of 19th Century London during Christmas will have their chance this week at The Spectrum’s Dickens’ Christmas Festival.

The festival begins today and runs through Saturday. Hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission includes entertainment and plays. Adults are $6 and seniors and children (4-12) are $4. Children 3 and under are free.
