Homes for the holidays
Niles Holiday Home Tour is December 12
By Alyson Whitaker
Nothing puts people in the holiday spirit like a festively decorated home. Don't have the time, energy, or resources to decorate your own, but want to get in the Christmas spirit? No worries! Come to Niles on December 12 for the annual Niles Holiday Home Tour. Enjoy a holiday reception and stylishly decorated homes in Historic Niles.
The tour begins at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum - 37417 Niles Boulevard in Fremont. Visitors may choose to drive or walk through the tour of homes, so check the forecast and dress appropriately. While the tour runs from noon to 5 p.m., organizers suggest beginning no later than 3 p.m. in order to see all the homes and enjoy the reception.
Proceeds benefit the Niles Main Street Association, a non-profit association dedicated to the revitalization and historic preservation of downtown Niles. The event also promotes the Niles Essanay Film Museum, where guests can do a little holiday shopping while supporting the museum.
In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, take the time to enjoy friends and neighbors as well as support the community. The Niles Holiday Home Tour is a perfect opportunity to do both!
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 the day of the tour. Advance tickets may be purchased online at www.niles.org. Tickets may also be purchased at select stores in downtown Niles including Keith's Collectibles, Antique Treasures, and My Friends and I.
