The Manteo Preservation Trust’s Holiday Tour of Homes returns for one day only, Saturday December 3 from 1 to 6 p.m.. Tickets for the tour will be available at Outer Banks Distilling, home to Kill Devil Rum, at 510 Budleigh Street in Manteo.
The ticket price is $25.00 per person, and it is a self-guided tour, via car, walking or bicycles provided by Manteo Cyclery on a first come, first served basis, or bring your own bike.
The route is 1.75 miles, and it can be done in whatever order you prefer. Ticket sales will begin at noon with the tour beginning at 1pm through 6pm. The last tickets will be sold at 5pm.
Several raffle baskets with donations from many local businesses will also be given away, with tickets available for $10 each or six tickets for $50.
Tickets will be drawn at 4pm in Outer Banks Distilling. You do not have to be present to win, but you will need to be able to pick up your item that day or arrangements can be made for pick-up.
The tour is part of a festive weekend of events that begins with a Friday night tree lighting, holiday pageant, fire pit, hot coco, and a Santa sighting plus much more.
Saturday morning starts with the 50th Manteo Christmas parade, followed by the Holiday Tour of Homes.
The north end of Roanoke Island has Winter Lights at the Elizabethan Gardens and The Island Farm also has holiday activities. It is a wonderful time to come for the weekend or stay for the day to enjoy our area. Come early, shop, dine and fall in love with all Roanoke Island has to offer.
