YES! It’s finally Autumn in VaHi and the air is cooler, the leaves are falling AND the Virginia-Highland Tour of Homes committee is in FULL SWING preparing for our neighborhood’s next big event. The 2014 Tour of Homes is set for the first weekend in December, Saturday and Sunday the 6th and 7th. Our committee has been working hard all year to ensure the success of this year’s tour.
This year’s line up of homes features seven incredible homes and one historic church. Each home is uniquely designed and decorated and represents the charming characteristics of our neighborhood. The Church of our Saviour is included this year, giving tour goers a special look inside a historic landmark and one of the oldest church communities in VaHi.
One of the highlights of the tour remains the delicious food tastings served in each home along the tour. Local favorites like LaTavola, Murphy’s, Highland Tap, Fontaine’s, Atkins Park, Timone’s, Noche, El Taco and San Francisco Coffee are back. New to the tour this year: Moore Farms & Friends and Tapa Tapa.
To make the tour more festive this year, we are very excited to have the Grady High School Chorus and Jazz Band performing live holiday music and carols throughout our community streets, restaurants and shops.
Each year the tour just keeps getting bigger and better. So many people make this fundraising event possible in order improve the quality of life in our community. The funds raised by the Tour of Homes go to support various projects in our neighborhood including playground/park improvements, sidewalks, safety, traffic concerns, planning and preservation and other community efforts.
Please visit our website vahitourofhomes.org for more detailed information on the times, the homes, the sponsors and the restaurants. There’s a map of the tour and some “teaser” pictures of our featured homes. You can purchase tickets on the website, as well.
This is a great weekend to kick off your holidays. TOUR, EAT and SHOP in the charming neighborhood we all call home. Remember, ToH tickets make great gifts, day dates, girls trips and family memories!
Hope to see you all out & about,
