Tour of Homes tickets on sale


LIVINGSTON -- Tickets for Mannafest’s annual Christmas Tour of Homes now are available at area banks, local churches and from members of the Mannafest team.

The festive tour featuring four local homes garbed in holiday décor will be 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3. Tickets purchased in advance are $20, while tickets purchased the day of the event will be $25.

The tickets include bus transportation to and from the homes, which this year are clustered within the city of Livingston. Those attending the tour will be able to catch buses beginning at 3:45 p.m. at Central Baptist Church.

The tickets also give attendees a chance to do some Christmas shopping with a group of talented artists and vendors who will have gift items on display at the church. Refreshments for tour goers will be available, as well as tickets for a barbecue meal from the Hitch-N-Post Café, which will be serving on site.

Locations for ticket purchases include the Mannafest Pantry, First United Methodist Church, Central Baptist Church, First National Bank, First State Bank and Peoples State Bank.

The MannaFest ministry provides monthly food boxes for low-income families in Polk County. It was established 15 years ago as a non-denominational ministry supported by First United Methodist Church, Central Baptist Church, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Trinity Lutheran Church and others.

All workers at MannaFest are volunteers and all proceeds from this fundraiser will go to the ministry.
