Southern Pines Christmas Horse Carriage Parade

This is by far my favorite holiday event in the Sandhills.  Big thanks to the Moore County Driving Club for decorating both their horses and their carriages along with their own outfits and driving through the historic downtown district of Southern Pines, North Carolina.

The 28th Annual Horse Carriage Parade is this Saturday, December 13th at 1:00.  It is also a great time to enjoy downtown Southern Pines, the small shops, the local restaurants, coffee shops and meet the people.  Southern Pines, NC is the quintessential small town.  

The parade loops both sides of Broad Street which is surrounded by historic buildings built in the late 1800's.  Through the center of Broad Street is the railroad tracks with our small and lovely train station that is enhanced by our town Christmas tree.  The streets are lined with 5 foot Christmas trees that have been decorated by local businesses and the street lights dressed out with lighted wreaths.

Be sure to join us Saturday at 1:00 for a small slice of small town America at Christmas.
