It may not have been quite as warm as Hollywood in downtown Ripon, but unseasonably warm weather did help boost attendance at the 27th-annual Dickens of a Christmas celebration.

   During the day last week Saturday, jacket-less visitors bounced from house to house at the Tour of Homes.

   For evening weekend events, people bundled up a bit more but were still surprisingly warm for both Fezziwig’s Festival last week Friday night and Living Windows last week Saturday evening.

   For the latter, windows were dressed up in true Hollywood style, too, as scenes from favorite holiday movies were re-enacted.
