By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - The Midtown Alliance of Neighbors is hosting the Fountain Avenue Area Fall Tour of Homes on Saturday, October 20, from noon until 4 pm.
The Midtown Alliance of Neighbors Executive Director, Sharon Poat, says, "We have seen such wonderful things happening in the Fountain Avenue area in the last few years. We wanted to give everybody a chance to meet some of the homeowners and see some really lovely homes." The tour includes a total of 13 homes, including nine homeowner occupied and four that are available for purchase. Most of the homes date to the early 20th century and include a variety of sizes and styles.
Tickets for the tour are $10. Tickets and tour information will be available on Saturday, October 20, beginning at 11:30 am at a table on the lawn of Fountain Avenue United Methodist Church (300 Fountain Avenue)--across from Lang Park. While the tour homes are within pleasant walking distance, a shuttle bus will be available for those who need it. Anyone interested in purchasing tickets ahead of time or in getting more information about the tour should contact Sharon Poat at 270-556-0826.
Please note that the tour is the first of several great opportunities to have some fun in the neighborhood on the weekend of Oct 20th and 21st. After the tour Saturday evening, the City of Paducah is hosting its annual Fall Festival in Lang Park from 5:30 until 8 pm. The festival is free to all and features games, food, a hayride, and a screening of ____ (Bring a lawn chair and a blanket to stay nice and cozy.)
