Hometown Holiday Festivities
Join us this holiday season for carriage rides, hayrides, Santa Claus, "ice"-skating and LIGHTS!
Reserve your own private horse-drawn carriage for a ride under the lights along historic Main Street. Carriage rides will be sold online in advance on a reservation system. Visit www.exploreforestcity.com beginning Monday, November 27, 2023 at 12:00PM to make reservations. Carriages can seat 4 adults or fewer adults plus additional children. The carriages will depart from Huntley Alley behind the concession stand at POPS (153 Park Square).
Bring the family and enjoy a hayride along historic Main Street. Hayrides will load in front of Main Street Meetings, 108 East Main Street. Tickets are sold on a first come, first serve basis.
Stroll through POPS and view the largest lighted ornament in the region! The ornament makes a great photo op for your holiday photos! And don't miss the decorated tree located on the small splash pad!
Santa will be visiting with the kids on the stage inside POPS from 6PM-9PM.
The "ice"-skating rink will be open from 6PM-until. Located across Park Square from POPS, the rink is a hit with both young and old alike!
Local food trucks will be set up near the Rutherford County Farmers Market.
Explore Forest City Main Street Association will be selling hot chocolate, cider, and coffee at the POPS concession stand.
While in Forest City, make sure to visit our local restaurants and shops on historic Main Street! Grab a bite to eat, shop for unique Christmas gifts, and view the decorated storefront windows!
In the event of inclement weather, some activities may be canceled. Follow us on Facebook at Forest City Events for up-to-date information.
