Beginning on Saturday, Dec. 5, and continuing through Sunday, Jan. 3, Cleveland Culture Gardens will host Holiday Carriage Rides on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 8 p.m. The Holiday Carriage Rides are designed to create “memorable, special moments with family and friends.” Guests will wait before the ride at a fireplace and then receive hot chocolate and hot cider to drink as a carriage takes them through the gardens and fields. Sponsored by the Cleveland World Festival, Famicos Foundation and Shamrock Carriages, the Holiday Carriage Rides celebrate the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Centennial.

“The Cultural Gardens is a Cleveland treasure,” says James Levin, executive director of the Cleveland World Festival, in a press release. “Since we began the summer Festivals in 2013, this amazing under-known and underused resource has begun to gain appreciation as an urban oasis, and we want to offer the community an opportunity to enjoy it year-round. Peter Leneghan of Shamrock Carriage is one of the best in the business, having worked in New York City’s Central Park, and we hope to create an unforgettable holiday-themed experience for the young and old!”

A special kickoff event on Dec. 5 from noon to 2 p.m. will feature free hot chocolate and snacks and the chance to roast marshmallows in the fireplace.

The Holiday Carriage Rides leave from the Upper Italian Garden (990 East Blvd.) The cost of each ride, which accommodates up to five persons, is $25 or $50, depending on the length of the route. A percentage of the proceeds goes to the Famicos One World Theatre Camp, which takes place during the summer at Michael R. White School in Cleveland.
