Ninety-three scenes populated by handcrafted mannequins dressed in period clothing are set up at each lamppost and bench between 6th and 11th streets; they depict Dickens-era activities and some of his literary characters, including Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim. Downtown retailers have brochures available. For more holiday merriment, stop by the 1881 Guernsey County Courthouse on an evening from early November to early January; each night it is lit with 30,000 lights set to holiday music.
