The tradition continues – holiday house tours

by Jenna Anderson

What has become a Christmas tradition, for many people in Dundas and beyond, is the 42nd Annual St. James Anglican Holiday House Tour.

Having evolved since the first tour which took place in the mid-70s, this year’s tour offers six unique homes, both modern and historic.

The House Tour has become a full day of activities which includes shopping the Dickens Lane artisan market, buying locally made baked goods or socializing in the church’s parlour.

Visiting Dundas, known as the “valley town” for its location at the bottom of the Niagara Escarpment on the Western edge of Lake Ontario, is an experience in and of itself. It boasts lush mature trees on every street in the historical district, trees which will surely be covered with snow and Christmas lights by the time of this year’s house tour.

This year’s tour takes place on Saturday, December 2nd from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. More information at stjamesdundas.ca or 905-627-1424.
