  1. We toured 9 of the 10 residences — amazingly beautiful, unique homes, many with 2nd floors and pools. Also dropped into 2 realtor Open Houses for recently renovated homes on sale at over $500,000. Missed Senator Farley’s talk at 2:30 P.M. at Catalina Methodist Church (no time) but did take in 3 businesses — Tumerico Mexican restaurant, Qilosophy (new massage/chiropractic business) and Jen’s Organic Home (who served mimoas and lunch salads). What a deal. Printed program tickets sold out at 1 p.m. so maps were printed for other visitors. Gorgeous day for a home tour of gorgeous homes. Neighbor/artist Vytas Sakalas had his art on view at 2 homes as well.

  2. Today! Get your tickets after 10 a.m. at Rincon Market, 2513 E. 6th St. (NE corner of Tucson Blvd.). This is the pick up place if you bought your tickets online prior to today. Enjoy Springtime in Tucson by visiting beautiful homes, gardens & interesting businesses (for complimentary refreshments) today, 12 noon to 5 p.m.

    • Glad to hear you will be attending. Lots of people just show up at Rincon Market on Sunday morning to buy tickets, as well.
