Shoppers and tourists along Calvert's main drag stepped back in time Saturday, for the town's annual Victorian festival.

Lots of people sported clothing styles from 130 years ago.

Shop keepers donned costumes for their sidewalk sales, and at least one artist even painted in victorian attire.

The town's heyday came during the late 1800s, and many of Calvert's main street store fronts date back to that era.

Visitors say the surroundings and costumes put them in a whole new world.

"I mean its something different than we've ever seen before. We're originally from Illinois and we moved here a year ago, so we don't get to see things like this. Its like an old western town, its interesting," said College Station visitor Randy Wolken.

Festival goers also enjoyed an afternoon victorian tea as well as a formal gala, in the town's historic pavilion.
