TALLADEGA -- The 2018 April in Talladega Pilgrimage is halfway over, but the fun and festivities are expected to continue into Saturday, as long as the weather holds.
As usual, the centerpiece of April in Talladega is the Tour of Historic Homes in and around the Silk Stocking District. This year’s homes include the Salter-Montgomery Home on East Street South, the East Street Apartments, The Stringer-Waller Home, the Eugene Landreth Music Hall on the Alabama School for the Blind campus, Somerset House Bed and Breakfast and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.
The Tour of Homes will continue Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with tickets available at $25 each for adults and $10 each for students 12 and under.
Tickets are available at the Greater Talladega and Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce and Heritage Hall Museum. All proceeds go toward historic preservation.
There will also be tours of Oak Hill Cemetery at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and a luncheon at St. Peter’s from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The family block party on the Square will start at 5 p.m., after the last tour, and go until around 9, but there will also be a lot going on around the Square and the historic district as well.
Juggler Ron Anglin will be performing at the Armstrong-Osborne Public Library, next to Heritage Hall on South Street, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Also, the Hall of Heroes opened to the general public for the first time Friday morning and will be open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as well.
The block party is free and open to the public, and will feature live music, food and other vendors and nonprofit organization booths.
