Alameda Holiday Home Tour

A good chance to see Alameda homes all decorated for the holidays with the 38th Annual Alameda Home Tour is this Friday and Saturday. The actual fundraising tour event, will be held Saturday, December 13, 2008 from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM. If you are looking to get a preview, there is an elegant “Candlelight Preview” will be held on Friday, December 12, 2008 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

The Home Tour will feature a variety of Alameda’s architectural style homes decorated for the holidays. Always in early December, the date is early enough for guests to include gift and holiday décor shopping at the Arts and Craft Boutique. Also on sale are holiday packaged baked goods, candies, and specialty food items at the Gourmet Shoppe. A Dessert Tea will be served, and an optional luncheon will be available at The Encinal Yacht Club. Booklets are presented to each guest and provide a map of the tour and description of each home. The Candlelight Preview includes a post tour party including champagne, a light supper, and dancing from 7:30 PM to 11:00 PM.

Friday night's Candlelight Preview party is at the Encinal Yacht Club from 7:30 PM to 11:00 PM. Come to the Candlelight party dressed in your festive holiday attire.
