SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2013:
Tour decorated homes, enjoy church luncheons, high tea, local artisans, taste-tours, holiday crafts and our home-made pie sale!
Is it time for a day out with friends?
Here's an idea!
COME TO Vankleek Hill's Christmas Home Tour on
Saturday, November 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This year's theme is: CHRISTMAS IN THE COUNTRY!
This event is sponsored by The Review and we are sharing the proceeds with eight different community organizations.
EIGHT DECORATORS are at work to deck the halls for this day!
ADVANCE TICKETS are a MUST and cost $20 each.
This is always a fun day to visit Vankleek Hill, Beau's award-winning Craft Brewery (take a taste-tour), and you can also taste and visit at Vankleek Hill Vineyard, where a Christmas Craft Fair is also taking place (just a few minutes outside of Vankleek Hill) enjoy lunch at one of our five restaurants, try lunch or tea at one of the three churches each offering a special luncheon on this day, or visit Arbor Gallery and the Vankleek Hill Museum.
There is also a HIGH TEA offered at the Trillium Tea Room. For HIGH TEA, please reserve in advance by calling Sandra 613-678-6892. (If I were you, I'd eat lunch twice!)
Remember to vote for your favourite decorated house! You will receive your ballot with your tour map. Place your ballot in one of the ballot boxes at local shops and restaurants or at
The Review. The winning decorator gets a bottle of champagne to celebrate the win!
EVERY TICKET PURCHASED entitles you to a chance to win a Gift Basket LOADED with local products & goodies, valued at $500! This gift basket is on view at The Review offices!
