Starting the day after Thanksgiving and running through Christmas Eve, you’ll be able to clop through the streets of downtown in a real horse-drawn carriage. And best of all, it’s free. Thanks to generous support from Wheatland Bank, individuals, couples, families and groups can all enjoy the unique holiday atmosphere of downtown Spokane as they sing their favorite carols or simply sit back and enjoy the classic seasonal ride. To grab a seat, you’ll want to wait for a carriage on Wall Street right across from Wheatland Bank. They run Fridays from 3 to 8 pm as well as Saturday and Sundays from noon to 5 pm, ending Christmas Eve. Each carriage comfortably holds up to eight adults, and the standby system means there’s no need to make reservations. And even though there’s no charge for the ride itself, please feel free to tip your driver!
