It's back! It's the 44th annual event that lets us look inside historic homes. So iron your linens and dust off your sun hats, and prepare for a leisurely stroll (sometimes a drive) through historic Riverside/Avondale. A 1920s-themed VIP preview party that surely calls for new spats and the longest, Chanel-i-est pearls you can find is 6-10 p.m. Thursday, April 12, $75, raphometour.com.
The Tour of Homes is 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, April 14, and noon-5 p.m. Sunday, April 15, $20-$35.
