Neighborhood Christmas event drawing near

GREENVILLE — The holidays will be celebrated in one of Greenville’s most historic neighborhoods again this year with horses, wagons, lanterns and lots and lots of Christmas lights.

Christmas on Park Street includes the annual horse drawn Wagon Rides and Lantern Parade. The rides are scheduled Dec. 7-8 and 14-15 and offer a leisurely tour of one of the city’s most elaborately lighted areas.

The rides start from the parking lot of Park Street Baptist Church. Tickets are $8 per person and a lap child can ride free.

The annual Park Street Lantern Parade is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 8.

 Those wanting to participate in the free event are encouraged, but are not required to, wear Victorian costumes during the pedestrian and/or equestrian event.

All proceeds go to the Park Street Historical Association, in a cooperative effort with the City of Greenville, to pay for historic street lights in the neighborhood.

Those wanting additional information about any of the Christmas on Park Street activities can call 903-455-3116.
