It’s that time of year again! We are getting ready for the holiday tours. This year we are doing something new as we are having two tours, “Holly Springs Holiday Houses” for the town tour and “Christmas in Marshall County” for the new county tour.
The houses that will be open are incredibly beautiful and it will be a rare treat for those who choose to take the tours. This same group of houses will never be on tour together again.
This year we will have six houses on the town tour and four houses on the county tour. Three of the houses are brand new. The others are antebellum. The houses in town are: Featherston, Polk, Crump, Finley, Walter Place and Livingston. Houses on the county tour are: Tallaloosa, Solitude, Cedar Oaks and Galena Plantation.
Tickets for the tour, if bought in advance, will cost $25 each, but for groups of ten or more the advance tickets will cost $22 each. Advance tickets must be bought before November 24. The week of the tour the cost of the tickets will be $30 each. Tickets for both tours if purchased in advance, will cost $44 each.
Lunch will be served at the Kate Clark Art Gallery. Lunch for the county tour of December 8 and 9 will be served at Kirkwood Golf Club’s dining room. Reservations must be made for both places. Call the museum for details.
The Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the Christmas parade on December 1 on the square at 5 p.m. A delightful Christmas cantata will be held at the Christ Episcopal Church with the University of Mississippi’s Parlor Music Ensemble on Saturday at 2 p.m. On Sunday, December 2, Marshall Academy will present a cantata under the direction of Chris Mirante. On December 7, 8 and 9, a dinner theatre will be presented by the First Baptist Church choir under the direction of Robert Williams.
