Stroll, Sing and Shop During Dickens Special Events

The month of December gets under way in Skaneateles with a traditional holiday event and a new one.

On Dec. 2, the community will gather for Skaneateles Sings (formerly known as Locals Night). The celebration starts at 6 p.m. at the Skaneateles Library, with Father Christmas and Mother Goose greeting children, reading stories and posing for photos. At 6:30 p.m., the Rev. Craig Lindsey of First Presbyterian Church will dedicate the crèche in a candlelit ceremony.
