Ever wonder what Christmas was like in the 1800s? Dicken's Victorian Village in Cambridge illustrates just that with their annual holiday fun. Each year, downtown Cambridge becomes a winter wonderland as it takes visitors back to the era of author Charles Dickens.

Located about 80 miles east of Columbus, Dicken's Victorian Village began their holiday display on Nov. 10 and it will continue through Jan. 7. Stroll the streets and see the Christmas scenes with lifelike mannequins and colorful lights.

If you're looking for some family fun, don't miss Mr. Fezziwig's Ball. On Saturday, Nov. 19, head to the Deerassic Park Education Center for an evening filled with dinner and dancing. You'll see ballroom dances performed by the costumed Cambridge Social Dance Club, and they'll even give you a chance to join in on the fun. Tickets for dinner and dancing (beginning at 6 p.m.) are $35, and those who just want to dance can purchase tickets for $20. Ticket information and more on the Dicken's Victorian Village holiday programs can be found at dickensvictorianvillage.com.
