In desperate need of Santa's attention over the busy holiday season, many homes dress themselves in hydroelectric reindeer, sentient candy canes, and gothic elves. Scope out more conventional Christmas décor with today's Groupon: For $25, you get two tickets to Wildwood's Holiday Tour of Homes (a $50 value), which showcases five homes in west Little Rock on Saturday, December 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Wildwood’s Holiday Tour of Homes celebrates the beauty and wonder of the Christmas season. Steep your senses in holiday ardor while exploring five of west Little Rock’s finest and most festive homes, from Chenal Valley to The Heights. As you admire the elaborate holiday adornments, exquisite architecture, and troll-free doorways in each dwelling, warm up with delectable hors d’oeuvres and beverages (available at select stops). Bundle up for an afternoon of Christmas magic, marveling at tastefully trimmed trees, festal festoonery, and merry entertainment. Proceeds go toward supporting Wildwood Park’s touring production, Art to Go!, a statewide arts education play for elementary students.
Wildwood Park’s 104 bucolic acres are home to woodland trails, manicured gardens, and the 625-seat Lucy Lockett Cabe Festival Theater. In service of the center's continuing mission to encourage lifelong learning and fertile imaginations, the expansive grounds host myriad events that marry culture and art, from annual festivals to year-round children’s education programs. Beyond artistic pursuits, visitors can simply savor the center's natural splendor by taking in the sights of the Richard C. Butler Arboretum, wending through the Carl Hunger Wildflower Glenn, or spotting ballerinas in the wild at the park’s eight-acre swan lake. The nonprofit park maintains its gardens, education projects, and other artistic hallmarks purely through help from its community, including volunteers, individual donors, and arts organizations.
