Friday, December 21st marks this year’s final night of the beloved tradition of Suntrust Dickens of a Christmas! The festivities will begin at 6pm and continue until 10pm! The highlight of the night will certainly be the SPCA Pet Costume Contest; because the holidays aren’t just for humans! Dress up your pet(s) and come join the fun and laughter at this annual event. This year’s event will be made extra special by the involvement and enthusiasm of the Roanoke Valley SPCA and their volunteers. Other activities taking place throughout the night in the Historic Market area include carriage rides, live carolers, a magician, a fire eater and sword swallower, photos with Santa, a living nativity scene, and more! So, grab everyone you know and head Downtown to see some cute pups and celebrate the holidays the right way!
