What has proven to be one of the most exciting parts of the Spirit Of Christmas Past is the horse drawn carriage rides around town. Horse drawn carriages are brought up from Charleston and offer carriage rides around town, down Fountain Inn’s Main Street and this year through Inn Circle, a popular city subdivision.
Lanterns, luminaries, Percheron Draft Horses touring guests by carriage on a one mile route of beautifully decorated homes for the holiday’s. One quarter of a mile along the route, Harper and Caroline’s home is a vision of Whoville. You might see Cindy-Lou, but can you find the Grinch? He’s in the neighborhood….you’ll have to search really hard. When it comes down to it, guests to Fountain Inn will see that the Grinch hasn’t stolen the the Spirit of Christmas from Fountain Inn!
Carriage rides will run December 8-11 and 15-18 from 5:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
The spirit of Christmas is not lost in the small town flair. Fountain Inn goes above and beyond to celebrate The Spirit of Christmas Past. A two week event that is sure to bring joy to the season and fun to the family. Come out Wednesday, enjoy the parade and make plans to skate on the ice and then chose an evening to take a carriage ride around this beautiful town.
Fountain Inn is a great place to live and is proving itself as the “Inn Place To Be“.
Only minutes from Greenville, close to shopping and easy access to interstates to take you in any direction around the state, Fountain Inn is no doubt the Tip of the Golden Strip.
