We were there on Sunday but didn't see anyone.  Guess everyone did Saturday only.

Did ya' not see WarCat?  She was working with "Doc Braggart's Medicine Show" at the stage around the corner from the Soda Fountain and Candy Shop.

Nope, completely missed her.  We circled the whole place but somehow missed her.  We even spent quite a bit of time in the Steam Punk area.  Didn't see any shows though.  Mostly went for the shopping.  I was on the hunt for the lady with all the lanterns.  Unfortunately, she didn't show up this year.

In fact, it seemed there was quite the shortage of vendors this year (with the exception of the steam punk alley).  I hope the Dickens committee can find a way to remedy that for next year.
