Pull out your Christmas sweaters and socks, dust off your eggnog thermos, and purchase your tickets today for the 2011 Winnetka Heights Holiday Home Tour. The tour is this Saturday, December 3rd from noon to 6pm, and is the 25th annual Holiday Home Tour. The tour features six homes that have been beautifully decorated for the holidays, each showcasing the great beauty, craftsmanship and historic charm of Winnetka Heights, Dallas’ second largest historic neighborhood. And between the Holiday Home Tour and Jingle Bells on Bishop, there’s no better way to get in to the holiday spirit!
Tickets for the tour are available in advance for $12 on the Winnetka Heights Holiday Home Tour site, or in the Bishop Arts District at Espumoso Caffe, Hunky’s or Shambala. Tickets on the day of the tour will be $15 and may be purchased at Turner House, 401 N. Rosemont Avenue. At Turner House, visitors will also be able to participate in a silent auction, enjoy samples from Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters and Kessler Cookies, hear carollers and meet with representatives of a dog rescue group to perhaps find a new member of the family. The event begins at Noon, December 3rd and continues until 6 PM. Proceeds of the tour help the Winnetka Heights Neighborhood Association (a 501 (C) (3) organization) with their goals of fostering a safer, more attractive and better place to live.
