COLUMBIANA–The Columbiana Beautification Board is celebrating a Holly, Jolly, Trolly Christmas in Columbiana this year for the Annual Tour of Homes on Saturday, Dec. 6.

Columbiana’s very own trolly will be decked out for the holidays as well as several area homes. The self-guided tour, which will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., will feature Lewis Lakes Vineyards as well as a home that is soon to be featured in Southern Living Magazine.

Each stop on the tour will be decorated to holiday perfection in colors of the season and will reflect the décor that is unique to the owner. Tour tickets can be purchased in advance for $10 from Busy Hands, Seventh Heaven, Davis Drug Gift Gallery, Shelby County Museum, Main Street Florist and Columbiana Barber Shop.

Tickets at the door are $12. Proceeds go to the Columbiana Beautification Board for use on projects that benefit the city. For more information, call 669-7813.

Also, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. the seventh annual Artist Market at the Shelby County Arts Council will be held at 104 Mildred Street for the chance to stock up on handmade gifts for family and friends made by local artists. Admission to the market is free.
