Winterfest Carriage Ride Once Again Free
By Gazette Staff

The WinterFest Tree Lighting celebration will be held at PT Barnum Square on Friday, November 23 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The horse drawn carriage, which has been fee for the roughly 3 decades it has been part of the Chamber's WinterFest celebration, was thought to be headed for it's first fee of $3 as the Chamber could not carry the cost this year.

More than 20 Bethel businesses answered the Chamber's call for sponsors, and once again the horse drawn carriage ride will be free to attendees.

The ride will be slightly longer this year, as it will run in front of The Gift Cottage down to the Train Station where the new Holiday Village and kiddie Train Ride will be part of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Daily Fare.

Riders will find a donation box this year, which the Chamber hopes to generate some revenue to offset other event costs.

As of press time, the sponsors include: A.Krueger Plumbing & Heating, Alice's Flower Shop & A Country Touch Gifts, Belardinelli Tire, Belardinelli Services, Berkshire Refrigeration, Bethel Historical Society, Escape Salon, Famous Pizza, Hollandia Nurseries, Insurance Financial Resources, Lawlor Graphics, Macaroni Kids, Note Kitchen & Bar, Patricia's Presents, Peoples United Bank, Royal Choice Global Transportation, The Bethel Community Gazette, The Daily Fare, The Gift Cottage, The Insurance Center, The Toy Room, Toll Brothers
