Frequently Asked Questions + Answers

Q:  Is this a rain or shine event?
A:  Yes! The tour must go on!! Rain or shine, a home tour is a great way to spend a rainy day.  Bring your umbrella and we’ll be ready for whatever Mother Nature has planned.  TOUR LIFE HACK:  if it’s raining, please wear shoes that can easily be removed and wear booties or sock feet inside the homes — this prevents having wet shoes and therefore wet booties.  Thank you!

Q:  Must I wear booties inside the homes?
A:  Yes – everyone (children included) must wear the provided booties or sock feet inside tour homes.  Please plan ahead to wear shoes that are easily removed that you can wear with socks, or, wear shoes that are easily covered with the booties.

Q:  Is the WRHT kid-friendly?
A:  ABSOLUTELY! The White Rock Home Tour is a fun event for the entire family.  Children 12 and under are free.  We ask that parents hold the hands of small, rambunctious children inside the homes around fragile art and home goods.

Q:  Is the WRHT pet-friendly?
A:  We allow small pets only if they are carried or kept in a bag.

Q:  Is photography allowed inside the homes?
A:  YES.  We encourage you to snap away and share your photos.

Q:  Is this booklet/program thing my actual ticket?
A:  YES.  The booklet IS the ticket.  Present your booklet to volunteers at each home to gain admittance into the home.  Notice the back cover is a check-list of all the homes.  Volunteers (usually Hexter Elementary students) will check-off each home as you visit.

Q:  Do I have to go to Hexter Elementary to pick-up the ticket I bought online?
A:  If you want your paper ticket booklet, please pick it up at Hexter Elementary Will Call from 11 am until 4 pm.  It’s easy – and especially this year, the Northcliff home is across the street, so you should park at Hexter Elementary and walk to the home.  By centralizing online ticket will call, we save money on printing extra tickets to be placed at each home…thank you for understanding.  If you don’t want to pickup your paper ticket, simply show volunteers your Eventbrite ticket (either a print out, or your mobile phone) and we’ll let you tour the homes.
