in Stateville News, Event Posts

Sponsored by Griffin Insurance

The wonderful tradition of surrounding yourself with the sights and sounds of the holidays in a beautiful horse-drawn carriage ride through Downtown Statesville will continue this year. Make an evening of it with dinner and shopping. 

The 2020 Carriage rides, sponsored by Griffin Insurance, will be sold online in advance on a reservation system to minimize the crowd waiting to purchase tickets in line. The webpage to purchase carriage rides for December 3 & 4 will go live on November 30 - Tickets for Decemer 17 will go live December 4.

There will be one price per time slot, which will reserve the carriage for your group for a specific time slot. Please note when booking: each carriage will have a different maximum capacity. The price is the same for a couple to ride alone or for a group (up to the maximum number). In order to serve as many in the community as possible, we ask you only reserve one carriage ride this season Individuals are only allowed to purchase one carriage ride per night. Carriage rides are limited.

Rides will leave every 20 minutes to allow for carriage loading & unloading as well as sanitizing for COVID-19 safety. We encourage everyone to arrive promptly for your reservation. If you arrive more than 5 minutes late for your reserved timeslot, we will consider your reservation forfeited. If any of your group is late, the ride will proceed with those in attendance. No refund will be available. 

For your safety and the safety of our staff & volunteers, we ask that you follow the NC COVID-19 safety protocol, including wearing a mask, social distancing, using good hand, cough & sneeze hygiene, and staying home if you feel unwell. Dress warmly in case of cold weather - no blankets will be available in the carriage due to COVID-19.
