Let There Be Light: A Festival of Lights in West Adams Avenues. WAHA's 22nd Annual Holiday Historic Homes Tour and Progressive Dinner.

WAHA will celebrate the warm glow of the season with A Festival of Lights in West Adams Avenues, at the 22nd Annual Holiday Historic Homes Tour and Progressive Dinner, on Saturday, December 6, and Sunday, December 7. We'll make merry amid bright lights and bedecked homes, toasting the season with champagne and an enticing holiday feast.

WAHA's traditional holiday tour features a sumptuous progressive dinner, with each course served in one of the featured properties. This year we are "shining a light" on the world's cuisines, and will feature an internationally-inspired holiday menu. We've also scheduled a Sunday afternoon walking tour, without the food.
