Christmas Home Tour brings holiday spirit

Participants will visit a number of Red Deer homes which are decked out for the season

Central Albertans can enjoy the beauty of the holiday season while giving back to three charities during the Christmas Home Tour.

The event, which is set to take place on Dec. 4th, will give attendees an inside view of five beautifully decorated Red Deer homes. Participants can choose one of three different times to visit the homes which include 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Once a ticket is purchased for the event, participants get the address of their first home which is determined by the timeframe chosen.

When participants arrive at the first home, they are given the remaining homes in order of which to visit.

“We have a number of homeowners who really like to decorate at Christmastime and they have offered their homes to be open to the public,” said Cheryl Jardine, committee member for the Christmas Home Tour, adding they hope between 400-500 people take part in the event. “It’s a really nice afternoon of going through and seeing the homes with different styles and different home sizes.

“It’s a really nice intro into the holiday season and it’s an opportunity to get some ideas of what to incorporate in your own decor.”

Arliss Fallon, committee member for the Christmas Home Tour said she encourages Central Albertans to participant in the event.

“It’s a really inspirational day and often when people go through it helps them to be a bit more creative in their homes. It’s a really upbeat day and experience for people,” she said.

The event is supporting three charities in Red Deer including Big Brothers, Big Sisters, the Central Alberta Pregnancy Center and the Women’s Outreach as well as Families in International Needs (Uganda), World Relief and Haiti Arise.

Tickets are $20 each and are available at CrossRoads Church (32nd St. and the QEII Hwy.), The Country Cupboard (5022 Gaetz Ave.), and the Katz Meow Hair Salon (Pines Plaza). Tickets can be purchased by cash only.
