Fezziwig Feast

As you may recall, the Ghost of Christmas Past takes Ebeneezer Scrooge to a holiday party at the warehouse of the Fezziwigs, a lovely couple who employed him as a young man. Each year, all the workers attended, played games, sang songs, danced to a live band, and enjoyed a feast.

The Dickens Fair recreates this event, letting visitors enjoy a taste of all the traditional entertainments. Well, except the food and drink. The table is laid to display a spread suitable for a real Victorian holiday party; but for actual edibles one must venture into the streets of London. Fortunately, pubs are plentiful and chestnuts are roasting right on the corner.
