Christmas “INN” Our Town
November 29 @ 8:00 am - December 15 @ 5:00 pm
Come visit the City of Fountain Inn during our Annual Christmas Festival held throughout the city! A unique mix of events fill the calendar from November 30 – December 16, starting with the Rudolph Run and continuing with 15 days of our traditional horse-drawn Carriage Rides based in Commerce Park.
“This is an exciting time for our city each year,” stated Mayor Sam Lee. “We are fortunate to have a tradition in Fountain Inn with our Carriage Rides. Families and individuals come from all over the upstate and beyond to ride a horse-drawn Carriage through our downtown and Inn Circle neighborhood to see the tremendous holiday light displays. We are all kids at heart, and especially during the holidays. We are proud of our city and hope visitors will add us to their wish list of celebrations.”
