For one Saturday each year, Tacoma’s Stadium Neighborhood – known for its gardens, its lovely old houses and its high school that looks like a French chateau – channels the high style of Victorian London.

 

On Saturday, Dec. 8, you may encounter strolling Dickens characters or take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage. You can take in performances from noon to 4 p.m. at the festival’s tent (on First Street, across from Stadium Thriftway).

 

One highlight of the goings-on at the tent: At 4 p.m., there’s the Victorian Dog Costume Contest. Full details online here.
