It’s a wonderful time of year on Nantucket. We trade in our bathing suits and flip flops for our winter coats and boots and start to appreciate all that a Nantucket winter has to offer. One of the biggest joys of the off-season and especially Christmas time are the island’s events that have a really big impact on our local community. This weekend, a wonderful team of volunteers is putting together a great event that benefits the Friends of the Public School- the Holiday House Tour. In fact, this is their biggest fundraiser of the year! If you are looking for a festive activity this weekend, we hope you will consider supporting them as every dollar raised helps those who benefit from our school system.
Here are the details: The event on Friday night is a house tour that starts at the Whaling Museum and takes you down Union Street (the house tour takes a different route each year). The cost is $45 and with this ticket you will visit 5-6 homes, all decorated for the holidays, and also see the amazing Festival of Trees at the Whaling Museum. Three of Fisher’s favorite listings will be featured on the tour so we hope you enjoy soaking in the warmth of the Holidays while looking across Nantucket Harbor, a at 57 Washington Street, or enjoying the newly listed 42 Union Street and 13 Fayette Street. Spoiler alert… You may also get to see a few other listings that are coming onto the market in the next couple of days!
This exceptionally festive time of year allows us all to see a different side of Nantucket. This history of our wonderful Island really comes out during the holidays, enjoy!
