Antique Sleigh Rally

    Improve listing Presented by

Rescheduled to today, thanks to all that snow we received a few days ago.  Come out today to enjoy the rally and all of the rest of the things we have going on on President's Day Weekend.

See dozens of horse-drawn sleighs slide silently over the snow and compete for prizes in various categories, including crowd favorites Currier & Ives and Sleigh Dog.

The Sleigh Rally competition will be in full swing between 11:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. See the full day's schedule.

Sleigh Facts:

* Bob Sleighs have "Bobs," which are double runners that make them more maneuverable and easy to turn sharply.

* Sleigh bells were developed as a safety precaution. Because sleighs glide so silently over the snow, the jingling sounds prevented collisions, especially in the dark.

Admission to the rally is included in regular admission ticket at no additional cost.

Other winter activities include ice skating, sledding on 1830s-style sleds and horse-drawn sleigh rides around the Common.  Warm up by one of the many cozy fireplaces throughout the Village.
