This year, the old-fashioned Dilworth home tour will take a small step into current times.
For its 36th year of tours, the Dilworth Community Development Association will offer online ticket sales in addition to sales at local businesses.
The DCDA Web site will use PayPal, a secure pay site popular with many sites that sell items, as its partner.
The home tour is Sept. 12-13.
. “We get so many people from outside Dilworth that want to go on the home tour,” says Ann Willey, chairperson of the Home Tour Committee. “That got me thinking that there's got to be a better way than me sending them to people.”
This year, the tour includes 12 homes and businesses, plus a wine tasting.
Tickets are $20 advance, plus $1 if bought online, and $25 the weekend of the event. For tickets and info: dilworthonline.org.
