November 18 @ 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us for a magical night at our annual Light the Square event! Light the Square has something for the entire family. From live music to ice skating to horse-drawn carriage rides and a special appearance by Anna and Elsa from Frozen, this is a night you won’t want to miss. Our kid’s area hosted by Haute House Events will make your kiddos feel like they have stepped into a winter wonderland.

Please reserve your tickets for carriage rides here. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to The Carying Place. The Carying Place teaches homeless, working families with children life skills for attaining independent living while providing short-term housing and support services to address their individual needs.



November 24 @ 4:00 pm – December 31 @ 9:00 pm

Come join us for a festive carriage ride down Main St at Fenton this holiday season!

Please note – ticket purchases are for specific timeslots.  Please arrive before the start time of your slot (e.g. arrive before 5:00 pm for the 5:00-5:15 pm slot).

Each ticket purchases the entire carriage for the specified time slot.  Seating is limited to a maximum of 4 riders and two lap riders four years old or younger.  All children MUST be accompanied by an adult.  Please note that entry onto and off of the carriage does require the ability to negotiate steps.

Our annual Mistletoe Sip n Stroll is back! Enjoy themed cocktails as you stroll through Fenton, visiting our retailers for unforgettable in-store experiences. At the end of the night, turn in your stamped passport card for a chance to win a prize!

This year, all the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit The Carrying Place, which is a local non-profit that serves working homeless families with children by teaching life skills for attaining independent living while providing short-term housing and support services to address their individual needs.
