2013 marks the 26th year of the annual Dickens in Dundee activities. Join area residents to come out and celebrate the holidays!
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 financial support of local businesses and the Villages of East Dundee and West Dundee, it has grown into a weekend holiday festival which attracts a people from all over the Dundee area.
The weekend kicks off each year on the first Friday in December, with tree lighting ceremonies in both East and West Dundee. Residents and visitors stroll through downtown East and West Dundee to see local merchant's windows "come alive" during Living Windows.
Saturday begins with the cornerstone event: the Spirit of Christmas Parade. The parade begins at Second Street in West Dundee and travels across the Main Street Bridge into East Dundee, ending at the Dundee Township Visitors Center (The Depot) on River Street. Other popular events include Gingerbread House Making, Festival of Trees, Santa's Petting Zoo and, of course, a visit from Santa Claus himself!
Events take place in West Dundee unless otherwise noted. See the Schedule of Events for a complete listing, event descriptions, dates, times and locations.

Flood Brothers is a proud sponsor of the Great Chicago Fire Hydrants, a public art exhibition seen around the city in tribute to the work and heroism of our beloved Chicago firefighters!
Chris Campagna, a Chicago–based Artist (Designer, Fine–Artist, Muralist, Painter, Sculptor) designed Flood Brothers' two hydrants: the symbolic "Burnt Tree with the 911 Fire Helmet" and "Flood" that has water flowing out of the hydrants' two openings.
Chris describes his inspiration:
" 'The Tree' — I decided to burn the tree that I built up. Firemen are family and when one branch of them go the entire tree suffers. So I decided that was my goal. To create a symbolic tree and make it look burnt."
" 'The Flood' was because of the Flood family name. I decided to make a flood out of the hydrant."
The hydrants will be auctioned on December 4, 2013 to benefit the 100 Club of Chicago, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the families of fallen police and firefighters and an online auction to follow.
For more information, including all the artist biographies, display locations and hydrant photos visit: www.GreatChicagoFireHydrants.com.
Flood Brothers is Proud of our hydrants in the Great Chicago Fire Hydrant Project.
