I thought I would post this in case anyone is interested. Spring Mill State park is in southern Indiana (USA). Since it will be at night there should be some great photo opertunities.

The annual Holiday in the Village celebration will take place on Friday, Dec. 2 and Saturday, Dec. 3 from 5-9 p.m. at Spring Mill State Park.
Visitors are invited to stroll through the Pioneer Village as heritage interpreters craft holiday decorations, bake cookies, and prepare to celebrate a late 1800s Christmas.
Wassail and cookies will be served in the Village Tavern, and children can stop by the Village Pottery Shop to visit Father Christmas.
Live music will also be offered on Friday and Saturday evening in the Gristmill.
Park admission during the event is $5 per vehicle for in-state residents and $7 per vehicle for out-of-state residents.
Spring Mill State Park is at 3333 State Road 60 East, Mitchell, 47446.

went there years ago and watched them grind flour the old way on a giant wheel power by water from a creek; I still have the bag of flour I bought as a souvenir. Great place, I highly recommend it; living history. it is about time I return for a visit, am down the road a bit anyway. Indianapolis IN.

Yes, I went. My tripod failed me so I had to use a monopod. A few of the pics are on this thread:

I need to study my camera more to get better results. The time period being portrayed was 1863. We went early and got some of the pics before everyone else got there. The cookie pictures were taken while light was still coming in the windows and they had a hidden light to the left of the fireplace. Some of the buildings were jam packed after dark. Others were almost empty. The images of the woman dipping candles was all by candle and fireplace light. She very nicely froze each time I wanted to take a picture.
