Just when you may have been running out of socially distant ways to enjoy the summer, the St. Clair County Farm Museum has announced carriage rides on the grounds of the Goodells County Park.
Kim Shultz, owner of Majestic Heart Carriage Rides, said that she and her husband came up with the idea while biking around the park. They were looking for a way to keep their business going along with supporting the Farm Museum, and the collaboration was born.
The carriage rides are available on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00-5:00 p.m. starting this weekend and running through September 27. The cost is $30 per carriage ride, and can accommodate up to six people. The rides are approximately twenty minutes long with plenty of photo ops. Part of the fee will be donated to the St. Clair County Farm Museum, on the grounds of the Goodells Park. The Museum will be open for tours during that time also.
Shultz said that hand sanitizer is provided and the carriage is disinfected between rides. Rides can be scheduled by calling 810-310-0827 after 2:00 p.m. on weekdays.
