On Saturday, October 13 from 12pm-4pm the Passyunk Square Civic Association will host its annual Home Tour. The Home Tour is a self-guided tour of homes throughout the Passyunk Square neighborhood. The tour showcases homes in all stages of renovation, provides a chance to compare contractors, get ideas, and meet neighbors.
This year we have exciting news! The Home Tour will be the highlighted South Philly program of the city-wide 2012 DesignPhiladelphia Festival. www.designphiladelphia.org
The annual Home Tour is one of our most successful and important fundraisers. So far the response from the community has been great. Local businesses have stepped up as sponsors and a dedicated committee of volunteers has been working hard for several months to recruit houses and sell tickets. Many of your friends and neighors have already purchased tickets. And, very importantly, a number of your neighbors have agreed to open up their homes as part of the Tour. Don’t miss out on this important event for our neighborhood!
And in case you’re wondering what else your Home Tour ticket gets you, on the day of the Tour you will be entitled to:
- A free slice of plain pizza from noon to 4pm at Slice (10th and Federal)
- Admission to the Home Tour after party at South Philly Bar & Grill (9th and East Passyunk Ave) with one free drink to ticket holders and appetizer specials available!
- Free admission to the South Philadelphia Urban Design Walking Tour – take it in the morning before the Home Tour and become a neighborhood expert! http://passyunksquare.ticketleap.com/urban-design-walking-tour-south-philadelphia/
