On Saturday, December 13, and Sunday, December 14, The Heritage Society at Sam Houston Park will host the 52nd Annual Candlelight Tour, a wonderful holiday tradition. This year we celebrate “firsts” such as the Staiti, Nichols, and Yates families’ first holiday celebrations in their homes. New to Candlelight Tour this year are the Art Market in Connally Plaza, and Paper in Pieces, Larger Than Life: The Art of Avril Falgout, a collection of sculpted paper mache figures on view in Pillot House. The market, presented by Bayou City Art Festival, will feature a variety of works by regional artists, all available for sale. The Pillot House exhibit will feature the expressive and unique work of Avril Falgout, co-winner of the Lawndale Art Center’s 2012 Big Show. This year’s Candlelight Tour will have decorated buildings, historic characters relating stories of the past, carolers, Houston Boychoir in St. John Church, Santa Claus and his Workshop, family musical and magical entertainment and holiday fare at the Candlelight Café.
Gates open at 4p.m. to the Candlelight Tour Art Market, Candlelight Café and Museum Gallery. The historic buildings will open at 5p.m.
