Hometown Holiday Festivities

6:00 pm to 8:45 pm

Join us tonight for carriage rides, hayrides, 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 29 at 12:00PM to make reservations.  Carriages can seat 4 adults or fewer adults plus additional children.  Carriages are $40 for 15 minutes.  The carriages will depart from Huntley Alley behind the concession stand at POPS (153 Park Square).

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!

Bring the family and enjoy a hayride along historic Main Street.  Hayrides will load a the Rutherford County Farmers Market, 172 Park Square, across from POPS.

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! It has grown several feet since last year!

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!
