On Saturday, December 11, 2010 the 4th Annual Sweet Treats Tour is happening. 5 Ojo Inn Bed and Breakfast is one of the participants and we are excited about this years tour. Jan tried a number of different treats and forced me to taste them. It was a tough job tasting all those cookies and treats, but I endured with a smile on my face. For the tour, you can visit 8 different bed and breakfasts sampling their favorite cookie and candy recipes, collect copies of all the recipes, get holiday decorating ideas and enter yourself in a contest for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate!

This Saturday (12/4/2010) from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. the 28th Annual Eureka Springs Christmas Tour of Homes is happening. Jan is one of the docents and looks great decked out in her costume.

Fourteen locations are participating in this year’s tour, giving guests a glimpse of a bygone era. All stops on the self-guided tour will be lavishly decorated for the season with Victorian attired docents at each site to relate the history of each home. Each residence offers an opportunity to revisit the grandeur of the graceful Victorian era and its unique, enchanting homes.

Visitors will be treated to choir and band music, carolers, refreshments and merriment. Tour goers will also see elegant ladies adorned in their finery and dapper gentlemen dressed in tails and ties as they stroll through downtown Eureka Springs, the only city in the country where the entire city is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
