Highland Park Christmas Rides

All rides load from the On The Border at Knox and Cole.  When you turn into On the Border parking lot off of Knox we will be loading from the very back of the parking lot. Please choose your Horse drawn Carriage.  For 2018, we are offering Open Carriages/Cinderella Carriages starting at 5:00 PM.  Due to demand, we are trying to offer time slots even if it will not be completely dark.  We had many requests for this last year, and now it will be an option.  Again, it will not be completely dark for the 5:00 time slot, but it is another option for those that otherwise wouldn’t get a spot in 2018.

Weather Policy – in the event of bad weather, we will start canceling reserved rides at 4:00 on the day of the reservation if we will not be able to operate.  NOT BEFORE. Please provide a text friendly number as a contact so that we may reach a large number of people more efficiently.  We will attempt to contact you until we actually hear from you via text, phone, or email.   If we have to cancel due to bad weather, Refunds will be processed, on our end, within 7 days of the night after we canceled.  The determining factor for us canceling any night would be based on our ability to keep the seats dry on the carriages.  This means if there is a light mist or threatening rain, but not actually raining, we will likely attempt to operate.  The Open Carriages have convertible tops,  so they sometimes operate when the Cinderella/Princess Carriages and wagons cannot.  WE WILL NOT CANCEL FOR WIND OR COLD.
