BLOOMINGTON — The annual “Christmas at the Mansions” event is Saturday in Bloomington, and will include special tours of the David Davis Mansion, Ewing Manor and a "mystery house."
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $17, and for $20 on the day of the event. Tickets need to be purchased for either the 2 to 5 p.m. or 5 to 8 p.m. time frames.
