The annual Holiday Home Tour organized by the French Art Colony faced seriously nasty weather Friday evening. It was so bad that the carriage rides around the Gallipolis City Park had to be canceled altogether. However, many residents still braved the cold and slick pavement to enjoy the tour, which included several activities at the FAC, located on First Ave. A local favorite, the huge model train display drew waves of interested onlookers. The trains are owned and operated by Phil and Donna Heck of Gallipolis, pictured, and they can be available for parties, displays or groups by calling 740-446-3834. Pictured are also two women bundled up against the cold looking over the lovely holiday decorations.
