Pella, Iowa: Pella’s Annual Christmas Tour of Homes & traditional Dutch Coffee Time, previously hosted by the Garden Club has been adopted by the Pella Convention & Visitors Bureau with support of the Chamber of Commerce. The Pella CVB is working with over 50 local decorators, florists and creative volunteers to host this year’s event. A highlight of the 2013 tour will be the traditional Dutch Coffee Time, hosted at the former Historic Strawtown Inn Restaurant. Five homes are being groomed for reveal at this year’s tour. Many embellishments will be hand-crafted with ornamentations of all styles, hoping to give you various new holiday ideas to take home.

Tour tickets for this year’s “All Things Christmas” Tour may be used either of the two event dates, Friday or Saturday. Tickets are available through the Pella Convention & Visitors Bureau/ Chamber Office at 818 Washington Street in Pella, by mail, or at a number of local retail businesses beginning Monday, October 7. Ticket price for the tour including the Dutch Coffee Time at Historic Strawtown is just $15. Tickets for the annual event are non-refundable.
