Holiday Weekend Update!  Looking for a fun Indiana weekend getaway?  Or do you live in this area and are looking for entertainment close by?  Check out the endless possibilities for fun and relaxation happening this upcoming weekend in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana. The first weekend of December holds many special memories because it means three spectacular holiday events are taking place to get the Christmas season in full swing!  First, enjoy a day where Downtown is transformed into Victorian England during Dickens of a Christmas” on Saturday, December 1 from 10 am to 6 pm.  Throughout the day, there will be live performances by choirs and entertainers, roving carolers, Holiday Farmers Market, Riverside Skating Rink sessions, artisans in costume demonstrating their craft, carriage rides, and of course the Dickens and Victorian street characters announced and directed by town criers and a constable or two! Make sure you take advantage of the many "Dickens specials" by downtown restaurants and merchants. Wow!  Does this sound fun or what? The following day, do not miss the largest parade in Indiana, the Christmas Parade, that takes place downtown Lafayette.  Area bands, local floats, clowns, fire engines, police, postal workers and, of course, Santa will make an appearance!  This special event takes place at 2 pm and starts at 10th and Main Street, Lafayette. The fun does not stop here!  The 79th Annual Purdue Christmas Show will have you tapping your feet and joining in song during their magical annual campus miracle.  This show will not only brighten your day, but get you into the Christmas spirit as Purdue college students dance, sing and perform Christmas classics.  This is an event where students train and rehearse all semester long to ensure guests walk away joyful and enthusiastic about the season!  There are performances both Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2.
