Old-fashioned Carriage Rides, Caroling, and Goodies Entice Shoppers to Garberville
According to Michelle Bushnell, a local business owner, “Some of the merchants and I had a vision of an old traditional Christmas in our town….[W]e have a great area with amazing people. So we can up with this. Carriage rides will be from 1 pm to 3 pm. Dec 23rd starting in front of Organic Grace. The people doing this have requested no fee’s.” However, a tip jar will be in the carriage to benefit Heart of the Redwoods Hospice.
“[W]e will have Andy Barnett and his town band playing… and Carolers on Saturday,” Bushnell wrote. “Our stores will open for extended hours, and be serving refreshments and drinks.”
This event, she said, “makes my heart so warm to be pulling it together.”
