Enjoy sleigh rides through historic Chautauqua Institute grounds aboard a horse-drawn sleigh on Saturdays and Sundays beginning December 27th. Rides run every half hour from 1 to 3 pm and tickets are available at the Chautauqua Bookstore on Bestor Plaza.
Then, on January 18, 2015, Watch the Currier & Ives Sleigh Rally. While the rally competitors are horsemen and their sleighs, at approximately 12 noon, spectators can watch the Victorian style sleighs and costumed drivers as they parade through the historic grounds with sleigh bells jingling.
We were considering a home purchase in the Chautauqua Lake area and had a handful of homes that we wished to see. Richard had previously set up a search protocol for us. He arranged to meet with us on a Saturday (we are out of state) to review our search criteria and time line as well as visit the homes on our list. We were able to narrow our focus and will seriously pursue the search later this year with his assistance.Karen Weikart
