ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - The Junior League of Odessa will host its holiday horse-drawn carriage rides in December.

Here’s more from the Junior League of Odessa:

The Junior League of Odessa (JLO) will once again be hosting horse drawn carriage rides through Shiloh and Sapphire streets in Emerald Forest. This year, there are more days than ever to experience the family-friendly holiday event!

“We are excited to be able to offer carriage rides once again. 2020 has been a year of uncertainty, and like so many other organizations, the Junior League of Odessa has felt the impact,” said League President, Becca Myers. “With the cancellation of Merry Marketplace due to the pandemic, we knew we had to find another option so we decided to expand the number of evenings we will offer carriage rides.”

This will be the fourth year the League has offered carriage rides to the community. In the past, JLO has offered four evenings of carriage rides. This year, there will be 10 evenings of rides!

Each ride is about 20 minutes long. The event will be held on December 5, 7-11, and 14-17.

Extra safety precautions are being put in place to help minimize risks due to the pandemic. This year, tickets can only be purchased for private carriage rides for up to 4, 6, or 12 people. Masks will be required. Times vary from 6:30-9:00 pm.

Tickets are now on sale for the community. All of the proceeds raised from ticket sales will benefit the Junior League of Odessa. If you wish to grab a bite before or after your ride, food trucks will be on site taking cash only.
