UPDATE 2/10/2021: The Downtown Evansville Facebook page has just announced that the carriage rides that were planned to take place through downtown have been cancelled because of the inclement winter weather citing unsafe conditions and temperatures for the horses and guests. All purchased tickets have been refunded and there are plans for more carriage rides in the future. See the full post below.

The season of flowers, hearts and love is upon us and if you are trying to come up with the perfect, romantic Valentine's date night, look no further. The Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District is hosting Valentine's carriage rides through downtown Evansville. The Downtown Economic Improvement District is working to build a downtown focused on more activity and inclusivity .

The carriage rides will not actually take place on Valentine's Day since Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday in 2021 but rather the carriage rides will be taking place Saturday afternoon, February 13, 2021. The carriage rides can accommodate two to four people and cost just $10 per group although that price does not include the online processing fees associated with Eventbrite. Riders will meet the carriage in front of the lighted red Heart of Downtown located at 212 Main Street, in front of the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana. It will likely still be cold since it is February in Indiana so you will probably want to dress appropriately with a warm coat and maybe even a hat and gloves.
