TARPON SPRINGS

See Safford House aglow this weekend

There's something about candles and the holidays. Put it all together in a 19th century setting and what could be better?

That will happen again this year when the 1883 Safford House Museum hosts its sixth annual Victorian Candlelight Holiday Tour. Visitors stroll through the historic Safford House beautifully decorated for the holidays.

Explore the house and learn what the holidays were like 100 years ago. Enjoy live holiday music, carolers, lots of refreshments and a visit with Santa.

It all happens from 5:30 to 8 p.m., today through Sunday at the Safford House, 23 Parkin Court.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $6 for children and members. Buy tickets at www.tarponarts.com or by calling (727) 942-5605.

SAFETY HARBOR/OLDSMAR

Lots of ways to help charities

You can help Safety Harbor and Oldsmar charities this season by attending or supporting the annual Mayors' Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Friday at Tampa Bay Downs.

There are several ways to participate. You can buy tickets ($25 each) or business table sponsorships ($250 for a party of eight), make a donation to the Sponsor a Child program or create and donate a holiday tree to be raffled off at the event.

For information, call (727) 724-1555.
