    Friday-Saturday, December 2-3 | Dickens In Dundee & Riverside Parade Of Lights

    This year’s Dickens In Dundee will take place in East Dundee and West Dundee on Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3.

    Dickens in Dundee was formed in 1988. It began as a small community gathering, with caroling and the search for Tiny Tim’s crutch in local stores. With the support of local businesses, this event has grown significantly and attracts people from all over the Dundee area.
