The holidays are here.
They are primed and ready to invade Zionsville. And “Carol of Homes – Holiday Home Tour” is leading the way.
The third annual musical home tour, presented by Zionsville Community High School’s Show Choirs and sponsored by Bright House Networks, is Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The public is invited to see how the halls are decked in the six featured decorated homes and enjoy the sounds of the holidays as the Choralaire and Royalaire students showcase their favorite holiday carols.
This year’s homes are at 1150 Williamsburg Lane, 120 South 6th St., 9422 Pleasant View Lane, 11740 Sycamore St., 10276 Oak Ridge Dr., and 6501 Sussex Dr., all ranging in different holiday styles.
“The homes run from village charmers to a country estate,” stated fundraising co-chair for Zionsville Community Schools Jenifer Luczak. “You can get decorating ideas, see the lovely town and enjoy a days of twinkling lights and holidays sights and sounds to really get you in the holiday spirit.”
Erin Leonard is Luczak’s co-chair for the Carol of Homes, and this is their third year working together. They both have daughters in the Choralaires and had students in the Royalaires last year.
“I love that the Carol of Homes is a way for the students to be involved in the fundraising efforts of the Zionsville Show Choirs all while showcasing their talents to the community,” Luczak stated. “It is a festive way to kick off the holiday season and be inspired by the decorations and homes or the students singing carols.”
According to the “choir moms” there are more than 120 students involved in show choirs and 90 percent will sing in the Carol of Homes in the roles of home hosts, singers, bakers, and ticket sellers.
Advance tickets are available at Akard’s Hardware, Butler’s Pantry and Kogan’s Antiques, or at the homes on the day of the event.
Tickets are $20 each and on sale now. The tour will take place rain or shine, and all ticket purchases are non-refundable.
