WOODLAND – The Animal Welfare Council/Allegheny Spay & Neuter Clinic will host its second-ever holiday house tour on Sunday, Dec. 3, from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
The council has partnered once again with the local community, who have offered to share their wonderful Christmas spirit.
Tour stops will be a mix of historical and local homes, including some businesses that wished to show their support of the Allegheny Spay & Neuter Clinic and its work for the community.
This year, organizers have added a few additions—carolers, carriage rides and pictures with Santa along the tour route.
Tickets are $25 per person, and the tour will take place in the downtown area.
Booties will be supplied with each ticket purchase to wear inside each tour stop. Carolers will be staged at various stops and times throughout the tour.
Stops include the historic Dimeling Hotel where you may enjoy some light refreshments and observe the Festival of Trees.
And, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the lobby, participants may get pictures with Santa with your kids or pets (all pets must be on a leash).
Carriage rides will be at the Clearfield Lanes, located at 224 W. Second Ave., Clearfield, from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 6-12, and kids five and under are free.
Trout Run Drafts will bring a special guest, “Bill,” who is 14 years old and 20 and ½ hands tall. Bill has an application for the Guinness Book of World Records for the tallest living horse—another great photo-op.
Carriage rides are open to the public. Tickets will go on sale Friday, Nov. 10. Contact the clinic at 814-592-5565 to purchase tickets.
If you visit each stop and have your ticket marked by each host, you can enter the drawing at the Dimeling for a chance to win a large basket at the Animal Welfare Council table.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to the non-prof 501(c)3 Animal Welfare Council/Allegheny Spay & Neuter Clinic.
