Update: the ABPA Home for the Holidays Tour was cancelled. Stay tuned for any updates here at CandysDirt.com

Wouldn’t it be great if the homes for tomorrow’s tours looked like that? Still, we all need to plan for the weather, whether it turns out to be nasty or nice.

If you’ve got tickets to either the Lake Highlands Women’s League Holiday in the Highlands home tour or the Armstrong Bradfield Preschool Association’s Homes for the Holidays home tour, listen up:

The Holidays in the Highlands tour will go on tomorrow, Dec. 6, regardless of the weather. Tour organizers are urging caution.

For the ABPA Homes for the Holidays tour, the tour organizers will follow the HPISD winter weather guidelines, but the tour will go on as planned. For updates on the tour, you can go to the ABPA website.
