Amherstburg Holiday House Tour Replaced by Holiday Stroll
The Outdoor Holiday Stroll aka Rankin Avenue Holiday Stroll is back for a second year. Last year it replaced the Holiday House Tour and runs to the end of Dec.
Until the town can present the traditional Holiday House Tour again, proud homeowners along one of the oldest streets in Amherstburg have uniquely decorated their front yards and porches in holiday style. Rankin Avenue, in the heart of downtown and across the street from the River Lights displays in Kings Navy Yard Park, will be lit and decorated for outdoor, sidewalk strollers during November and December. Please note these are private homes, therefore viewing of the decor is strictly from a sidewalk distance. All COVID-19 and social distancing regulations apply.
