The annual Midtown Holiday Home Tour is Saturday, November 16 and Sunday, November 17 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will feature five homes in four neighborhoods with a marketplace including food from neighborhood restaurants and works of local decorators and florists that are available for purchase.
Each home will also display a classic car. The former Indiana National Bank building (at 215 East 38th Street) will have a marketplace featuring local florists and decorators in addition to food and beverage vendors that are featured at each tour home. Complimentary food and beverage vendor samples will vary Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Patrons can obtain their tour booklets and booties (plastic shoes) there as well.
Neighborhoods highlighted on the Midtown Holiday Home Tour are: Mapleton Fall Creek (Wells Home), Golden Hill (Carbrey and Nowak Homes), Butler-Tarkington (Waggoner Home) and Meridian-Kessler (Gaynor Home).
