The ticket price is $25.00 per person, and it is a self-guided tour. This can be done via car, walking or bicycles provided by Manteo Cyclery on a first come, first served basis, or bring your own bike!

Because of COVID concerns we will not be serving refreshments of any kind, either at the ticket location or in the individual properties.

Another part of our fundraiser includes several raffle baskets with donations from many local businesses. You may purchase these tickets for $10 each or six tickets for $50. Tickets will be drawn at 4pm in Outer Banks Distilling. You do not have to be present to win but you will need to be able to pick up your item that day or you have won, we can call you for a plan for a future pickup date. 

Manteo hosts this festive, weekend-long  events that begins with a Friday night tree lighting, holiday pageant, fire pit, hot coco, and a Santa sighting plus much more. Saturday morning begins with the 50th Manteo Christmas parade on Dec. 3, followed by the Holiday Tour of Homes. Check the town website for times. North end of Roanoke Island has Winter Lights (within the Elizabethan Gardens) and The Island Farm, both with holiday activities.

    “Because of COVID concerns we will not be serving refreshments of any kind, either at the ticket location or in the individual properties.” I guess there are still TV watching, brainwashed Covidiots around , huh? Yeah, I’m going to go ahead and boycott all their efforts.
