LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The Calcasieu Historical Preservation Society will host its 38th Annual Palm Sunday Tour of Homes on March 24.

Themed "Windows on the Water," the tour will feature five distinctive homes with breathtaking lakeshore views on prestigious Shell Beach Drive.

According to organizers, the tour is set for 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on that Sunday afternoon. A separate traditional Sunday brunch will be available by reservation with 121 Artisan Bistro (located at the gates of the historic Margaret Place Historic District) between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

"The houses on tour display a variety of architectural design and exquisite interiors, and each offers a glimpse of contemporary living in historic properties. The annual Tour of Homes is a much anticipated community event and design resource," said Donna Richard, 2013 tour chair. "The tour will also offer patrons a souvenir program with historic images and information about the Shell Beach area."  

Shell Beach Drive homes on tour include the Walker home (623), the Raggio home (811), the Reinauer home (813), the Boyer home (823) and the Fontenot home (1200).

Event patrons are asked not to wear spiked heels, as they can damage the hardwood floors.

The event is open to the public.

Tour of Homes ticket sales are available online at www.calcasieupreservation.org.

Pre-sale tour tickets are available for $10 (by cash or check) from Gordon's Drugs on Lake Street and the Arts and Humanities Council at Historic Central School. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the event for $15.

Brunch reservations should be arranged directly with 121 Artisan Bistro, 121 Dr. Michael Debakey Drive, by calling 337 310-7499. 

The 2013 Palm Sunday Tour of Homes presenting sponsor is Empire of the Seed Historic Properties.

    So far today, there has not been much rain across Southwest Louisiana. More showers have fallen in east Texas. They are moving to the north, and not in our direction, but I cannot rule out a couple showers popping up in Beauregard or Vernon parish. Therefore, I have only a 10% chance of rain this afternoon. The temperatures will be hot, though. Highs will be in the 90s, but it will feel like the triple digits. Overnight, most of the clouds will clear away.
