A Charles Dickens' Christmas at Lyman Orchards


December 23, 2023

Bah Humbug! It's the most wonderful time of the year! Take a delightful stroll through a classic Dickens' Christmas experience this holiday season, at Lyman Orchards.

Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and smells of a simple and traditional family Christmas event. Admire the outdoor lighted scenes, engage with familiar characters from the treasured book, A Christmas Carol; and head inside the beautifully decorated Lyman Family Homestead, to experience the joy of the holiday season.

Enjoy a cup of hot apple cider, freshly baked donuts and other goodies (for additional purchase) as you stroll the grounds of the historical Lyman Homestead, viewing light displays and meeting familiar Dickens' characters.

Indoor family friendly activities include letter writing to Santa, miniature wooden ornament coloring station, and story time in the Great Room. You just might bump into Scrooge himself!
