“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.”
