WINTER HOLIDAY FESTIVAL AT LORD STIRLING STABLE
Saturday & Sunday, December 8 & 9, 2012
BASKING RIDGE — The Friends of Lord Stirling Stable (FLSS) will present the 14th Annual Holiday Festival on Saturday and Sunday, December 8 to 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. The festival will take place at the Somerset County Park Commission Lord Stirling Stable, 256 South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge, NJ.
Children will enjoy hayrides through the woods to see Santa at his house (weather permitting). Santa’s Workshop will be open for games, craft projects, food, and more. Free pony rides will be available at various times throughout the Festival.
Adults will enjoy exploring the offerings at the annual Silent Auction, which benefits the Lord Stirling School Horse Retirement Fund, another FLSS initiative. Themed gift baskets, specialty items, and gift certificates for local businesses will vie for bidders’ attention. The FLSS gift shop will offer unique items for purchase.
In conjunction with the festivities, guests are invited to enjoy the Fall Holiday Horse Shows that provide Lord Stirling students the opportunity to showcase the riding skills they have learned in class. Horse shows begin at 9 a.m. each day. The Junior Drill Team performs on Saturday and the Adult Drill Team is featured on Sunday during the lunch break.
Spectators may enjoy the shows from the climate controlled viewing area. The horse shows are made possible in part by the sponsorship of Marcello’s II Restaurant & Pizzeria located at 260 Main Avenue in Stirling, NJ. Admission and parking are free.
Friends of Lord Stirling Stable is a 501(c) (3) organization of youth and adult volunteers working with the Somerset County Park Commission to support the activities of Lord Stirling Stable through contribution of ideas, time, and revenue.
