Dassel-Cokato Dickens Holiday Festival and Concert

PHOTO GALLERY – The Dassel-Cokato Performing Arts Center was transformed into an old-fashioned, festive and fun celebration of Christmas Sunday evening.  The event featured musical small group performances, vignettes from ‘A Christmas Carol’ by The FungusAmongus Players, and dancers.  A full turkey dinner was served to guests, who were then ushered into the auditorium for the Festival Concert, which featured many of the school’s musical groups, and the induction ceremony of Don Anderson and David Metcalf into the DC Arts Hall of Fame.
