A great crowd filled the houses to the rafters for the Kincardine Hospital Auxiliary's Christmas Tour of Homes on the weekend.
The event began Saturday night and continued Sunday afternoon at 10 locations, including eight private homes, the Walker House and St. Anthony's Parish Hall where refreshments were served.
The home of Don and Wendy Hughes on Stornoway in the Inverlyn Lake Estates was decorated by the hospital auxiliary and Quinn Florist, and featured the Christmas tree donated by Canadian Tire which goes to a deserving family after the tour.

Jerome Flowers and Gifts did an amazing job of the home of Scott and Anna van den Hogen on Princes Street South. The grand entrance has been renovated and decorated to make everyone feel welcome. The decor throughout the home and especially the fireplace in the family room, invites you to curl up and relax.

Brad and Melanie Pyke purchased their home on Knight's Court in January and undertook extensive renovations. As owners of the Kincardine Home Hardware, their project became the "Home that Home Hardware built" showcasing a modern functional kitchen with new cabinets, countertops and flooring, all tied together with a custom oak staircase. The facade of stone around the wood stove completes the home's warm family feeling. And they decorated it with wonderful items from their store.

The home of Ann Windsor on McPherson Crescent was decorated by Ripley area businesses: IC Greenhouses, Dalton Pottery and The Glass Hummingbird. The house has been extensively renovated with hardwood floors, two new bathrooms, all new windows, a propane fireplace and landscaping. It was made beautifully-festive for the tour.

The home of William Brown and Corinne Robertson-Brown on Princes Street North was breathtaking as it featured delightful European decorations found in Corinne's downtown store, J'Adorn. The couple bought the house in 1990 and have renovated, landscaped and installed a new kitchen.
