High Horses invites you to the Wassail Parade, hosted by High Horses and the Green Mountain Horse Association. Come see an eclectic array of festive and period costumes; outfitted carriages and mounted riders; and participants of all ages. The parade traverses through the village of Woodstock, VT starting at 12:00PM and expected to end by 2:30PM. This is a wonderful fun-filled opening event to the Holiday Season.
With costumes and carolers, snowflakes and scarves, mistletoe and merriment comes the Wassail Horse and Carriage Holiday Parade! Riders and drivers alike are invited to parade through Woodstock in fine Victorian holiday attire. Carolers will add to the festivities while the local community and visitors gather in downtown Woodstock to watch participants ride and drive an approximately 2-mile loop including the Woodstock Green where judges await.
Currier and Ives costumes and 19th Century Victorian Seasonal Attire are strongly encouraged.
