SLAYTON - Two teams of Shire Horses will be giving rides during the Holiday Open House in downtown Slayton from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.

 

One team will be hooked up with a Christmas-themed red wagon, and the other team will be hooked up to a brand new Amish-built sleigh that has been specially designed to travel on pavement. The route of the teams will take riders “uptown” on a round trip ride. For those who wish to shop and receive a return trip, there will be a brief load-on area by the Left Bank Café.

Tickets can be purchased at the Dinehart House during the day of the event; children under 5 ride for free. All tickets must be purchased at the Dinehart House.

One hundred percent of the ticket sales for these rides will go back to the Dinehart House for future programing, events and renovations.
