Visitors from across the state will travel to the Hill Country to celebrate a popular Fredericksburg holiday tradition as Preservation Week returns to the Gillespie County Historical Society this December 3-10, with an all-new Holiday Home Tour and Tannenbaum Ball.
This year the Holiday Home Tour kicks off the historic week on Saturday, December 3, 2011, from noon until 6 p.m. Patrons will be able to view seven homes, all decorated for the Christmas season. Tickets for the Home Tour are $25 per person and include tour booklet and access to each property.
On the following Saturday, December 10, guests can enjoy the Tannenbaum Ball with the theme of a “German Christmas.” This exclusive event offers an elegant evening of cocktails, seated dining, dancing to The Flying GTs, and a silent and live auction.
A prize drawing features a natural blue sapphire with “custom design” mounting - a $2400 value - through exclusive arrangement with Segner Jewelers in Fredericksburg. Prize tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20.
Ball tickets are $100 per person, reserved seating only.
The Home Tour and Ball are the largest fundraisers for the Gillespie County Historical Society.
