Wagon rides continue in historic neighborhood

GREENVILLE — Christmas on Park Street continues this weekend, with horse-drawn wagon rides scheduled Friday and Saturday.

The rides are scheduled between 6 and 9 p.m. both nights 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 rider.

Entertainment is scheduled to be provided by Dance Prodigy and food and drink will be available for purchase.

All proceeds collected during the event 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.

 The Association began the effort in late 2011 because the existing lights along Park Street are too high and are not placed evenly, making some areas too dark and others too bright.

The Park Street Historical Association has a web site at www.park-street.org.
