ADDC bumps Tour of Homes back a week due to wintry blast

Albemarle Downtown Development Corporation Director Joy Almond confirmed Saturday morning the ADDC’s Holiday Tour of Homes has been pushed back a week.

The move comes ahead of a weather forecast that includes freezing precipitation for the area. The Tour of Homes was originally scheduled for Sunday.

Now the tour will be 2-6 p.m. Dec. 16.

Advance tickets will continue at $12 each. They are available at Glory Beans Coffee, Starnes Jewelers, La T Dah Boutique, Second Street Sundries and the ADDC office at Albemarle City Hall.

Tickets and brochures will be available the day of the tour at Glory Beans Coffee, which will open at 1 p.m.

The proceeds from the event fund downtown Albemarle beautification projects.

With the change in date, one site has been changed from the tour. Site No. 2 — the West Albemarle Baptist Sanctuary and Education building — will not be on the tour from 2-6 p.m. It will be open 5-7:30 p.m.
