Businesses in downtown Roanoke are preparing for 25 Days of Dickens


ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) – How Downtown Roanoke Celebrates 25 days of Dickens this year the elf lends a hand on the shelf.

This year the celebrations include a scavenger hunt with 14 elves hidden in shops downtown. You can find one of them at Book No Further, where owner Doloris Vest looks forward to a safe and successful Christmas shopping season.

“We are very pleased that Dickens of a Christmas is being spread over 25 days,” Vest told WDBJ7 on Tuesday afternoon. “It was wonderful to have three big nights, but that was a lot at once. And if we spread it out over 25 days, we’ll likely see a lot more people. “

For the Elf-on-the-Shelf Adventure, from Wednesday to December 17th, get your passport at one of the participating stores. Find all 14 elves and win $ 1,000.
