Saturday, Dec. 2, 6:45 a.m.-8 p.m.
What could be more fun in December than peeking into the gracious homes of Lewes, Deleware, specifically on display for the holidays?
The people of Lewes pride themselves on tradition and historic preservation and it truly shows in their decorating skills. For Christmas 2017, the 44th Annual Christmas Tour of Lewes, sponsored by the Lewes Historical Society, will be a self-guided tour of both public and private homes. There will be a Christmas Market as well as an Artists of Lewes Gallery open house. Every year, the proud owners of the homes show off their eclectic decorations with their artwork and family heirlooms. Some houses date back to the early 18th century, others have been forwarded into the 21st century with creative additions.
Lunch will be on your own so that everyone will have enough time to see the houses and have a chance to shop the shops. There are several inviting restaurants in the town itself and a box dinner will be provided for the ride back to Virginia.
Holiday tours are always popular, so sign up early for this festive day filled with history and holiday cheer.
Online registration is not available for tours and day trips. Please contact the registrar at 703-790-0123, TTY: 711, for registration options.
