Today in Galveston you can take a trip back in time to the 19th century.

"Dickens on the Strand" gets underway beginning at 10am. It's a holiday festival where bobbies, beef-eaters and the queen recreate the Victorian London of Charles Dickens.

This year, organizers are trying to set a world record for the most signatures collected on a birthday card in honor of Dickens 200th birthday.

If you're attending, make sure to take lots of photos and video! And if you capture some good shots, email them to us at news@abc13.com.
