Victorian Front Porch Christmas Tour
Lighted Driving Tour: Wednesday December 11 - Friday December 13 & Sunday December 15 from 5-10pm.
Walking Tour: Saturday December 14 from 6-9 pm
This Christmas season, December 11-15, Opelika’s Northside Historic District is celebrating like it’s 1899! For five days in early December 60 Victorian and historic homes near downtown Opelika are transformed into colorful, nostalgic reminders of Christmas from a simpler, slower-paced era. The homes are adorned with life-sized Santas, angels, toys, carousel horses and other Christmas-themed figures, as well as Christmas lights, bows and greenery. Featured in Southern Living, Better Homes and Gardens and Southern Lady, the Victorian Front Porch Christmas Tour has been voted one of the Southeast’s top tourism events. Now in its 20th year, the event is a self-directed driving tour. However, on Saturday night, December 14, weather permitting, 8th and 9th Streets North will be closed to traffic to encourage visitors, friends and neighbors to stroll through the neighborhood. This enables everyone to leisurely enjoy the homes up close, listen to the carolers and other entertainment, and talk with residents dressed in Victorian costumes. The tour begins at North 8th Street and 2nd Avenue and includes over ten city blocks. Admission to this spectacular production is free.
