Dennisville House Tour, Cookie Walks, Elvis – Weekend Happenings
Here's Lite Rock's weekly look at fun ways to spend your weekend. Let me recommend Saturday's Dennisville Christmas House Tour. Talk about your Christmases past! This annual fundraiser for historic Dennisville is about as close as it comes to experiencing life in colonial-era South Jersey.
The tour includes eight beautifully decorated 18th and 19th century historic homes, as well as several public buildings and churches. The event also includes caroling from the MiddleTones from Middle Township High School, who have been a big hit coming in to perform on the Lite Rock Morning Show, dressed in period garb.
The tour runs from 4-8p Saturday Dec.16 and $15 tickets will be available beginning at 3:30p at the Dennisville Post Office, 24 Hall Ave.
