Cambridge Christmas at Dickens Village II
WHO: YOU!! (we hope!)
WHAT: Christmas Lights Show and Dickens Victorian Village walking tour
WHEN: Saturday, November 12th 3:00pm - 9:30pm
WHERE: Historic Downtown Cambridge, OH
WHY: We had SO much fun doing this last year that we decided it needed to be an annual event!
Guernsey County celebrates Christmas with a stunning sound & light presentation at the County Courthouse and life-sized Charles Dickens character displays scattered about historic downtown Cambridge. Come join us to admire the beauty, celebrate the season, swap cache talk with new and old friends, and find approximately 70 temp caches along the way.
The event cache and all of it's temps are 100% wheelchair and stroller accessible. There is free on-street parking available and I have waypointed 4 parking lots nearby. If you choose to walk the route I have laid out, you can expect a walk of about 1 mile on flat sidewalks. The light show at the courthouse begins each evening at 5:30, so if you arrive between 3-4 you will have time to visit the Dickens Village displays and grab a bite to eat before the light show begins. I will add the temps to this cache page in about a week and I will also have printed copies at the starting point for those who want them.
The Dickens Victorian Village is a unique walking tour experience along historic Wheeling Avenue in downtown Cambridge, Ohio.
The classic Dickens-era scenes -- over 70 in all! -- are comprised of nearly 185 life-like figures and are placed at each of the 40 historic lampposts and benches between 6th and 11th Streets on Wheeling Avenue, as well as in first and second-story windows throughout Cambridge's downtown. In addition, Dickens figures "stroll" around the Courthouse lawn, appear at the Byesville Scenic Railway depot, and even skate around at downtown's main intersection. The scenes enhance Cambridge's outstanding 1800s architecture, eclectic shopping, charming streetscape, and eateries.
We are going to supply some coffee, hot chocolate, and cookies for participants, so bring family and friends out for a nice evening to see some local beauty and share some cheer!! I have attached a youtube video clip from a previous year to give you an idea of what we'll be enjoying... :-)
