Homes bedecked for holiday tour

VISTA — Tickets are on sale now for the annual Holiday Homes Tour sponsored by Vista Community Clinic Dec. 8. This will mark the 33rd year of the event, a benefit for the VCC Kare for Kids Fund to provide medical services to underprivileged children. Tickets to the tour are $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the tour. To purchase tickets, visit or call (760) 631-5000 , ext. 1139.

A team of professional designers give their time and talents to create elegant holiday displays in four residences between Vista and Carlsbad. Ticket holders are offered the chance to tour each home at their leisure and shop at the holiday bazaar where local artisans sell their crafts. Also featured as part of the tour is the historic Rancho Buena Vista Adobe, considered to be one of the best preserved historic structures in the state, decorated for the holidays as well. A gourmet food truck will also be parked at the bazaar. Online ticket sales are closed Dec. 6, the Friday before the tour, but tickets can still be purchased on the day of the tour at the Rancho Buena Vista Adobe, 640 Alta Vista Drive, Vista.
