Planning is well under way for this year’s Silver Anniversary edition of the Historic Old Northeast Candlelight Tour of Homes – and we need your help! It takes a proverbial village to produce this popular event, which is also HONNA’s largest fundraiser. Chairpersons and volunteers are needed for various event components, including house captains, docents, musical entertainment, registration, food vendors, and house sponsorships. 

Helping produce one of Tampa Bay’s most popular home tours is a great way to meet your neighbors and have fun at the same time. As a “thank you” for homeowners and volunteers, HONNA hosts a private tour of the homes followed by a party at Westminster Palms the evening before the tour. 

This year’s tour will be from 3 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, December 10. The homeowner/volunteer party will be Saturday evening, December 9. Volunteers do not have to be Old Northeast residents. So, if you and other folks you know would like to lend a hand, please respond to Anna Broshears, Candlelight Captain, at

Everyone in the neighborhood can help make this 25th edition of the Tour extra special by including silver items in their holiday decorations.
