Victorian Front Porch Tour

            December 10th through the 14th will feature Opelika’s extremely popular “Victorian Front Porch Tour” through the North Opelika Historic Neighborhood district, where families lavishly transform the front porches of their elegant Victorian homes into a magical Christmas wonderland of Victorian Christmas scenes that include life-sized Santas, carousel horses and other figures, designed by former Opelika resident, and renowned artist, Jan Jones.  Opelika’s Victorian Front Porch Tour has captured national attention and has been featured in several national and regional magazines.  The event draws up to 10,000 visitors each year from all fifty states.  The tour is a “drive through” event on December 10th, 11th, 12th, and 14th.  However, on Saturday, December 13th, the event becomes a “walking tour” (beginning at 6 p.m.) when the streets will be closed to cars, and the neighborhood will “come to life” with folks in full Victorian dress, carolers, story tellers, and other entertainment stationed throughout the historic district.  Area churches and businesses offer visitors hot chocolate and light refreshments on this night.  The admission is free, but the experience is priceless!
