It’s getting to be that time of year again! There’s a nip in the air and quite possibly a pumpkin pie in the oven as families everywhere begin to ready their homes for the Christmas season! Once again, the Sneads Carlisle Rose Garden Club will add to your holiday festivities as they present the 2008 Holiday Parade of Homes on Sunday, December 14th from 2:00 to 5:00 P.M.C.S.T.
One of the five beautiful homes featured on this year’s tour is the Gainer home located on Hwy 90 in Grand Ridge. Designed by the late Mr. Ducky Johnson, this spacious four bedroom house is situated dramatically among several ponds, a lake and wildlife that also call this area home. You can bet that Santa will smile approvingly when he spies the custom built dollhouse that resides on the bank of the entrance pond to the property, a gift given to the homeowner’s daughter when she was three. As guests enter the new home and move into the family room, they are greeted by a large ten foot Christmas tree showcasing ornaments that hold special meaning for the members of the Gainer family. Three more spectacularly decorated trees can be found in the master and children’s bedrooms, all depicting a different theme and color scheme. The elegant formal dining room is set for a special Christmas dinner as the table gleams with heirloom china handed down from generations. Don’t miss this and all the homes on this year’s Holiday Tour of Homes.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased the day of the tour at the Log Cabin Community House on Old Spanish Trail in Sneads, where the tour begins.
