The Kincardine hospital auxiliary invites everyone to the 2014 Christmas Tour of Homes, taking place Saturday, Nov. 8 , and Sunday, Nov. 9.

This wonderful event will help you start thinking about how to decorate your home, inside and out, for the holiday season. The self-guided tour runs 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, and 12:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Visit six festively-decorated homes and help out a worthwhile cause. All proceeds from the event are used to purchase medical equipment for the Kincardine hospital.

Each $15 ticket includes a list of the homes, brief descriptions of each location, name of the store or stores decorating the home, map, and refreshments at the Kincardine United Church Hall. 

Tickets are available at the Kincardine hospital gift shop, Jerome Flowers and Gifts, Kincardine Home Hardware, Quinn Florist, Harbour Rose Boutique, J'Adorn, and Susan Nichol Pottery in Ripley. Sunday tickets are available at Jerome Flowers and Gifts.
