SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Christmas is coming, and a few lucky Siouxlanders got to take a tour of some of the Dakota Dunes' most decked-out homes.
It's part of the annual "Siouxland Tour of Homes."
With the purchase of a $25 ticket, guests make their way through five homes, to see the elaborate Christmas decorations, and get some design ideas for their own homes.
This year, the event is sponsored by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland. The money raised will help provide mentors for the 50 children still on the program's waiting list.
Organizers hope the tours, and the silent auction items, will get that done, and then some.
"Just the difference in decor for Christmas, the holiday season, you know. There's lots of color, there's lots of class. There's lots of natural earth-type decorations this year, so a good mix," said Jill Colling, president and CEO of BigBrothers Big Sisters.
If you still want to go on one of these tours, there's still time. Tours run through Saturday, from 10 a.m until 5 p.m. daily.
More than 50 people can go on each bus tour, which leave from the Stoney Creek Inn in Sioux City every half hour.
