One of Herndon's holiday traditions is nearly here. The annual Holiday Homes Tour takes place Saturday, Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Five houses are included in this year's tour, including a Sears home ordered from the Sears catalog in the early 1900s that arrived piece by piece on a train.
Also included is a newly renovated bungalow with a hand-dug basement with an artist's studio, a vine-covered brick cottage, a two-story clapboard farmhouse style home, and a newly built stone home.
The tour's organizers from the Cultivating Community Initiative say the Holiday Homes Tour is a great way to get in the spirit and gather ideas for holiday decorating and celebrating.
The tour ends just in time for the annual Herndon Holiday Tree Lighting and Sing-Along. The sing-along starts at 5 p.m. in downtown Herndon and will include carols, music performed by Herndon High School band students, a tree lighting and a visit from Santa Claus.
