5th Annual Grand Homes & Historical Landmarks of Vallejo Tour
Have a Alice in Wonderland adventure and walk into some of Vallejo's most beautiful homes.

The Tour's reception -- from 3-5pm -- is in an historic building that was once Vallejo's City Hall built in 1927, and designed by architect Charles Perry. It is now the Vallejo Naval & Historical Museum where the exhibit "Gazing Through the Looking Glass" will be presented. Major illustrators of Alice in Wonderland books and artist with the fascination of Wonderland will be on display.

At the reception, there will be old-time musical banjo performances, wine from Lake County and the Napa region, Chai Tea, a centuries-old beverage, which has played an important role in many cultures, and from Panama Red cafĂ© on Vallejo's waterfront,  delectable tastings for a festive start before the self-guided tour.

Aside from charming historic Vallejo homes, ranging from imaginative craftsmanship to Victorian, and Italianate to Gothic, there will be a special treat to visit one of Burning Man's top creations by Shannon O'Hare (Major Catastrophe) the NeverwasHaul built in 2006 and made from 75 percent recycled materials. It is a self-propelled 3-story Victorian house that was built for the Burning Man Festival in 2006 -- a magical nomadic 19th century structure inspired by the works of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and other science fiction writers who focused on the imaginary technology of that age. This time the Victorian Haul will be decked out for the holidays  a rare treat!

Proceeds support the Mad Hatter Holiday Festival & Parade (Web Page: www.hattervallejo.com, & Facebook Page: MadHatterHolidayVallejo & 3-minute YouTube video @ www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN6MhLHYFrI)), California's Most Whimsical Fantasy Holiday Happening.
