Eight homes in the Canton area are on this year’s Christmas Tour of Homes. Tour-goers can visit the homes at their own pace and in any order.

One of the homes on the tour is being decorated jointly by several committee members and local businesses. All holiday furnishings and decorations seen in this home will be sold starting at 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, to tour ticket holders. The sale will be opened to the public the following day.

Sponsored by the Canton Educational Foundation, all proceeds from the Christmas Tour of Homes will benefit the Canton Miss Labor Day Scholarship Fund.

Tickets will be on sale soon at Polly’s Florist and Gifts in Canton and Mountain Home Collection in Waynesville, or can be purchased at any of the homes on the day of the tour. They are $10, with children under 12 free.
