The great tradition continues with horse-drawn carriage rides to see the holiday lights in Uptown Shelby. Join us to remember a slower time that families have enjoyed over the years. Dress warmly in case of cold weather. Make an evening of it with dinner, shopping, and a visit to Santa's House!

Tickets are only sold for rides the evening of (no advance ticket sales). The rides stop at 8:30 pm but we may have to end ticket sales early if the line is so long that it will take until 8:30 for everyone to ride. Ticket sales are not guaranteed to continue until 8:30 pm.

Carriage rides are available around Uptown on the four Friday nights following Thanksgiving. Adult tickets at $10 and children 4-12 are $5. Carriages depart from the Washington Street side of the Court Square. Use the address 111 S. Washington St for a GPS.
