Take a Free Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride

With music and multiple opportunities for hearty eats, Kelseyville Christmas in the Country aims to nourish body and spirit. The event, on December 6, will begin with free horse-drawn wagon rides through downtown Kelseyville, 4:30–6:30 p.m., as well as chili and chowder and live music at the Kelseyville Presbyterian Church, 4:30–7 p.m. At 5 p.m., St. Peter’s Catholic Church will begin its Pork and Chicken Tamale Feed; and at 6:30 p.m., after everyone has eaten their fill, the Lighted Parade will begin on Main Street. The evening will end at the Kelseyville Fire Department, where the town’s tree will be lit and the Kelseyville High School Choir will sing holiday tunes. For young ones who want to visit Santa, Father Christmas will be holding court at the Westamerica Bank, where pianist David Neft will be tickling the ivories. For more information, go to
