2020 Lebanon Carriage Parade Behind the Scenes Highlight Video

 

2020 Lebanon Carriage Parade Behind the Scenes Highlight Video

Be sure to take a moment and watch the 2020 carriage parade (behind the scenes) highlight video. We hated that we had to cancel the Carriage Parde this year, we decided to produce this behind the scenes video to get a look at some of our horse & carriage teams, their history, experience, and tradition of being part of the carriage parade.

Please watch the video, share it, like it, and let the horse teams know that 2021 will be bigger and better than ever. Merry Christmas, happy holidays and thank everyone who has taken part in the Lebanon Horse Drawn Carriage Parade & Festival in years past and years to come. #lebanonohio #LebanonAreaChamberOfCommerce #ohio
