We Are Excited to Announce Our 32nd Annual Horse Drawn Carriage Parade & Festival Information

Saturday, December 5,2020

 

** Due to the Covid Pandemic, we will not be able to have our normal Carriage Parade and Festival. But we have developed alternate plans (that were approved by the Warren County Health Commissioner), so that we can still give our community and tourists a “Safe Holiday Tradition”. We ask that everyone please help us keep this event safe by following ALL of the expected rules and regulations that have been established this year. We hope to resume our normal Carriage Parade and Festival in 2021.

 

Located in Historic Downtown Lebanon, join us as we kick-off our Holiday season. The parade features only horse drawn carriages. The highlights of the event are the 1pm, 4pm and 7pm carriage parade which will have the "Best of the Best Top 40 Horse Drawn Carriages" pulled by Clydesdales, Percherons and many more!
