Reserve the carriage for 30 minutes or one hour. The horse and carriage can be brought to the park for a birthday surprise. Or, they can take children for a ride, stop for a treat at the ice cream shoppe, and then resume their ride. For safety purposes, at least one adult needs to accompany the children for these tours.
An example trip would include a ride around the waterfront to see the shrimp boats. The birthday child can sit up front with the driver, or the kids can take turns sitting up front. The carriage can seat six children.
