These photos from the last Riverside Dickens Festival are long overdue. Especially since the next festival is this coming weekend. Actually this is what caused me to remember that I had never gotten around to posting my photos from the last event.
I'm gonna let the photos speak for themselves. If you are anywhere close to the Inland Empire be sure to swing by. This event has really grown over the years and it is a prime chance to get all gussied up to see and be seen.
Enjoy some tea, envy the ladies in the fashion show, shop for a top hat or just oogle all the vintage and antique jewelry. I know I will. I'm lucky to only live about a mile away from the Riverside Convention Center so I am planning to take a break from a busy Saturday to lose myself in another world. Even if it's just for an hour or so.

Lovely participant in the fashion show demonstrating a Civil War era style of dress.
I hope to take more and better pictures of the fashion show this time around. Last year I wore a long lace duster that made it difficult to clambor about. I won't make the same mistake this time.
