Shoppers will find a variety of events staged at participating businesses including the galleries and special Gift by the Hand gallery at The Phipps Center. The event runs from 6-9 p.m.

The Danielson home on Crosby Drive is a special place to them and their wide circle of friends and family. And this holiday season they are making that circle even wider by welcoming in the thousands who will attend the Chamber of Commerce Christmas Tour of Homes this weekend. It is almost impossible to imagine that this spacious Arts and Crafts house situated high on a beautiful wooded lot was almost destroyed by a fire in 2009.
