The Owensboro Symphony’s annual Christmas Tour of Homes will take place on Saturday, December 10, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This year’s tour will feature homes in Owensboro’s Griffith Avenue neighborhood.
The homes of Ted Bowne, Missy and Nick Burlew, Kimberly M. Jagoe and Marla and Don Moore will be featured on this year’s tour. In addition, holiday music performances will take place at the First Presbyterian Church during tour hours. All locations will be at their best with what will be some of the most creative and over-the-top decorating likely to be found in the region.
New to the tour this year is a Christmas Tree Forest! Four trees designed and donated by Studio Slant, Smith House Floral and Events, Welborn’s Floral and Events and Lynn Turner will be on display at the home of Ted Bowne. Individuals on the tour will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for $10 per tree. Four winning tickets will be drawn at the conclusion of the tour.
