This December, the historic homes clustered in downtown’s Sam Houston Park once again open their doors for the Heritage Society’s Holiday Candlelight Tour in the Park. The 48th annual tour will take place on Friday and Saturday, December 10 and 11, 2010 from 6:30–9:30p.m. Visitors will get to experience an old-fashioned Christmas, with centuries-old seasonal decorations and costumed carolers setting the mood.
Share in the excitement as costumed re-enactors participate in historical vignettes portraying holiday celebrations from the past. Crafters will demonstrate long-forgotten holiday traditions. You can visit the Gingerbread tent to create holiday crafts or have your photo taken with St. Nick. You might even thrill to the experience of an unexpected snowfall, right in downtown Houston!
Tickets are available for $10.00 (adults 19+) and $5.00 (students 13-18 and Seniors 65+). Children (12 and under) are admitted free. Advance tickets may be purchased by contacting The Heritage Society Business Office at (713) 655-1912 or at their website, www.heritagesociety.org. Cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express may be used to purchase tickets. Tickets may also be purchased at the gate.
All proceeds from the Holiday Candlelight Tour in the Park benefit The Heritage Society to further the mission of preserving the past while educating for the future.
