The carriages and horses are back in the barn until next year. Santa is getting ready for his big day and our volunteers are resting up. But we wanted to thank everyone that visited us this year for helping to create a picture perfect holiday season. You donated to organizations, shopped at our local shoppes, ate at our town restaurants, brought Toys for Tots, and most importantly wore your mask.
We hope that we brought our community joy and a reminder of the reason for the season.

We are having carriage rides, but want to remind everyone that we are only able to accommodate the first 35 groups. We have 2 carriages, and our horses need breaks and care throughout the night. We will be back!!! Based on the interest we will look into increased carriage capacity.

❄️Live music from 5-7pm in the Armory Courtyard.
❄️Carolers from 5-7

For the safety of both participants and volunteers as well as our horses we are unable to have carriage rides tonight as originally planned. The risk of refreeze after dark creates an environment that creates a hazard for the animals. We ALL appreciate your understanding (especially Savannah).

❄️We want to see your Winter Wonderland photos.  Please share your experience with us!!!❄️

Another Saturday night of Winter Wonderland in the books. It looks like the secret is out and we had many visitors to our beautiful town. We welcome everyone to enjoy our light displays, vintage truck, Santa and of course a carriage ride. But in return we ask for patience, understanding and a face mask! Next Saturday will be our last weekend with events, we look forward to seeing you then.

~We are a completely volunteer run organization.
~Although we doubled our efforts and offerings from last year, we are operating within a pandemic, with limitations. Your understanding is appreciated.
~We will be back next year and hope to be able to grow, without a Pandemic!

12/12/2020

An hour before rides start and a significant line has already formed. Please remember we offer these rides complimentary and they are first come first served.
After tonight there will be 2 more opportunities to catch a ride.

❄️A note about carriage rides❄️
We do our very best to accommodate as many riders as we can in an evening. Please understand that we can not and will not over schedule rides for the health and safety of our animals. They require breaks and care.

Our partners have made it possible to offer carriage rides free of charge. They are available on a first come first served basis. When a line begins in front of the Armory we will assign times for riders to return. Please use that time to enjoy our town, its restaurants and shoppes.

We have such a great group of volunteers that make Winter Wonderland possible. These organization do a lot of the heavy lifting to ensure that carriage rides, photo ops and lighting displays remain complimentary.

The lights will go on at 5pm, Welcome Santa as he arrives by carriage on Main Street as soon as Main Street is illuminated!

This year we have 2 carriages to better accommodate more riders. Please be aware that members of the same household may ride together. Due to COVID we will not be combining riders. Carriages will leave from the front of the Armory on Main Street from 5-9 pm. You must be present to be added to our list. Our “reservation” list will begin at 5pm on the Saturday of Winter Wonderland. We do not reserve spots before that time.
We ask guests to socially distance while waiting, and after a time is given, please enjoy our lights, restaurants and local shops. Rides are about 8 minutes and are complimentary.
Tips will be accepted to support local organizations, musicians, and causes throughout the town and we will be accepting donations for Toys for Tots!
**Dont forget to drop off your letter to Santa! If you include an address you will receive a response from the big man himself via mail**
We want everyone to have a joyous time while visiting but need everyone to wear a mask, even outside and be patient! We are all navigating unchartered territory right now! ❄️🌲❤️

Tanglao Carriage Driving

Today was a busy day of harness fitting. The teams had their harnesses adjusted to fit them perfectly with the carriages used for rides (vs the carriages we train in) and got some new parts to their harnesses as well.

First event coming up for us is the first night of Winter Wonderland in Bel Air!!

And now, the introduction you’ve all been waiting for in the line up of horses that’ll be at Winter Wonderland in Bel Air. The one. The only. Savannah!

This is the horse that started all this madness. She was bred in California and has shown all over the USA. She’s completed single, in a pair, and in a 4-in-hand. She will teach beginners or be competitive for the most advanced driver. She is God’s gift to the world... my absolute soul mate.

Come say hello to Savannah with Dancer at Winter Wonderland in Bel Air!
