Downtown Smithfield is especially magical in December, when the storefronts are beautifully decorated for Christmas and the Town decks the halls for the season!  The DSDC hosts Christmas Carriage Rides to give people a chance to enjoy the twinkling lights around our festive downtown! 

Free Christmas Carriage Rides will be offered in 2023 from 5-8pm on December 1, 8, 15, and 22.  Reservations are required.  Check back in November to make your reservation.

The carriages can typically accommodate groups of 4-6, depending on the carriage and the size of the riders.  Carriage rides typically last about ten minutes. 

Have dinner downtown before or after your carriage ride at one of our fantastic restaurants! Do some shopping! Take in a movie or visit some of our wonderful attractions!
