Lansing, Michigan will once again transform downtown into a Dickensian holiday paradise with the 8th annual Old Town Dickens Village, December 6th, noon to 5pm.
The Victorian era holiday was replete with men and women bedecked in formal, many-layered clothes, horse-drawn conveyance, streets raucous with the spirit of the season, and the smell of roasted chestnuts, game birds, and baked holiday goods on the air. Now you can visit a semblance of these times in downtown Lansing’s Old Town Dickens Village, an annual event in Lansing’s shopping district along the Grand River Avenue and Turner Street.
While Lansing’s Old Town Dickens Village may be short on some of the bleaker aspects of the Victorian era – and hopefully Scrooge will stay home until after all the ghosts have visited – what they do deliver is an old-fashioned Christmas scene in which to shop and get into the spirit of the season.
