“We are excited to create a new holiday attraction in one of the best urban parks nationwide,” said Royal Carriages Director of Marketing Kimmie Carlos. “As one of the oldest carriage companies in the country at 78-years strong, we want all of New Orleans to experience history with us to celebrate the season and, hopefully, create new family traditions.”

The mules will be dressed for the holidays, including a mule named Mr. Bingle.

Rides are set to start on December 2nd, departing from Irby Avenue near Storyland, and will run on various nights throughout the month.
