Castles of Carlsbad home tour announced


The Carlsbad Library and Arts Foundation will present its Sixth Annual “Castles of Carlsbad” 2009 Spring Home Tour on Saturday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. During the one-day, self-guided tour, up to 1,000 ticket holders will stroll through the interiors and grounds of six unique homes located throughout Carlsbad.

Tour guests will enjoy refreshments on the lawn at “Villa La Costa”, a private resort-style home with an intriguing “history” that tour docents will be sharing. The raffle drawings feature six elegant gift baskets with luxury items including stays at local resorts, golf packages, gourmet dinners, elegant spa visits and more.

“Guests can also relax with their refreshments throughout the day in the mini-theatre tent where Foundation trustees will be showing our beautiful new DVD, featuring the Carlsbad City Library Learning Center opened in August,” said Gina McBride, Vice-President of the Foundation. “We have started speaking engagements featuring the DVD at corporations, civic clubs and private groups to share the compelling story of the learning center with the community and we welcome invitations.”

Home tour tickets are available online at

  1. Each ticket has a tour map and guests can visit the homes in any sequence.

The net proceeds from the tour will benefit the mission of the Foundation and will provide funding for the library and arts facilities and programs.
