The 30th Annual Tour of Homes in historic Guyton takes place on Tuesday, featuring home and church tours, trolley rides, music and food. Advance tickets to tour the homes can be purchased at Gregory’s Floral Designs and Gift Shoppe and at Reiser and Reiser CPA in Guyton.

Children 12 and under tour for free. Tickets are available on the evening of the event at the Guyton Woman’s Club on 116 Lynn Bonds Ave.

Beginning at 5 p.m. and running until 9, catch a glimpse of Santa ironing his suit.
