Celebrate Victorian Style with Fezziwig’s Ball to Support Holly Dickens Festival Nov. 17

Holly, MI – In the Charles Dicken’s classic “A Christmas Carol,” Ebenezer Scrooge is taken back to the memory of Christmas past where he sees the grand celebration hosted by his former employer Mr. Fezziwig.

The Fezziwigs were a kind couple that treated their employees like family, unlike the iconic misanthropic character of Scrooge.  And their ball is a celebration of all things that Scrooge is not – loving, kind, generous, fun, and happy.

The community of Holly mimics that grand occasion each year with the Fezziwig’s Ball at the Holly Hotel. This charming event features food, dancing, stories and games with a Victorian-era theme.  Historic attire or holiday dress is not required, but it is encouraged.

New this year is a couple who will be playing Mr. and Mrs. Fezziwig, Jon Russell-Coggins and Mary Bontumasi-Coggins.  Check out this video intro by the charming hosts:

The event raises money for the Dickens Festival, which takes place Nov. 23, 24, 25 and Dec. 1, 2, 8 and 9.

Fezziwig’s Ball is Nov. 17 from 7-10pm a the historic Holly Hotel (110 Battle Alley, Holly, Michigan 48442).  Tickets are $30 each or 2 for $50.

Order online HERE, by Nov. 16.
