Holmes Mystery Weekend

Victorian Holiday Season in Cambridge, Ohio. In December, this town in southeastern Ohio transforms itself to a Victorian fantasy. Victorian-oriented activities abound. But they save the best for last. On the first weekend of January following the all the magical Victorian Christmas events, Sherlock Holmes takes over.On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Jan. 6 through 8, 2011, Holmes and Watson come for a visit, and find themselves embroiled in a serious criminal investigation which tests the investigative abilities of the local populace. Everyone get involved in the case to the limits of their abilities.  Holmes has returned to Cambridge to play the part of Scrooge in one of his favorite plays, Dickens masterpiece “A Christmas Carol.” Watson comes along to see his friend take the stage. Of course, with their history, neither is overly surprised when a member of the cast turns up dead — murdered!
Visitors can join Homes, Watson, and Cambridge Chief of Police Dick Wayt as they work together to discover who done it! Was it the innocent college student? The jealous lover? The catty cougar? The sneaky theater manager? The scorned beau? Make up your own mind, and maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of the mysterious Dark Ghost or the lovely, tragic Singing Lady.

  1. It will be amazing to see who can ‘match wits’ with the famed detective Sherlock Holmes. Search around the Dickens Characters themselves to find out who-dun-it. It will be amazing for the grand prize of $250!
