Horse Drawn Okanagan sleigh rides to run through December

Celebrate all things winter this December the old fashioned way with horse-drawn carriage rides through Ottercrest Farms in Armstrong.

“It’s the perfect Christmas activity for the whole family,” the City of Vernon announcement read.

The sleigh rides, Dec. 21-29, run approximately 25-minutes long and seat 14.

Grab a travel mug, cushion and maybe a blanket to nestle in and enjoy the winder delights.
