    This sounds like a lot of fun. So glad it’s FREE!! I spend most of my Christmas funds here every year and can’t usually attend any of the special events.

    Will the sunset party on the Elyssa carry on if it is raining? Isnt it an outside event?

      In case of inclement weather, the Salute to Sunset event will be moved into the Texas Seaport Museum. Friday night’s schedule at Fezziwig’s Beer Hall will stay as is. Times of each band are posted underneath their picture.

    Will some of the vendors be set up Friday evening? Will the store on the Strand be open past 6 pm?
    We’ve never been on a Friday night but we are thinking about it. Thanks!

    Even with the rain Dickens was awesome! Really kind of felt like England!! I feel bad for the vendors, but I managed to spend quite a bit on Christmas gifts! Can’t wait for next weekend!
