One of the most beautiful destinations in Atlanta and definitely the best park that the city has to offer, Piedmont Park is a place where the true beauty of the city can be absorbed in large doses at a time. Hosting a plethora of events throughout the year, Piedmont Park seems to have an event for every season, including the current holiday. Seasons of Magic at Piedmont Park is a collection of holiday-themed activities that celebrate not only the spirit of the season, but also the beauty of Atlanta.

            This event, now in its second year, features family-friendly festivities and things to do. Couples and families can enjoy daily horse-drawn carriage rides in Piedmont Park, the only Atlanta park with carriage rides. Visitors will be carried through the historic areas of the Park, enjoying beautiful holiday lights and ornaments under the scenic Atlanta skyline. Rides are available every ten minutes from 4:00pm to 10:40pm daily. Each ride is approximately 20 minutes in length. Infants (0-24mos) ride free.

            During Season of Magic you can also enjoy carousel rides with the Atlanta skyline in the background or romantic strolls through the Park to enjoy the festive lights and ornaments. Carousel Rides are: Daily: 4:00pm – 10:00pm Weekends, Public School Holidays, Holidays: 12:00pm to 10:00pm.
