Dec. 24: Candy Canes for Ponies at Sunrise Stables


Looking for a fun, nonshopping excursion on Christmas Eve with the kids? The annual Candy Canes for Ponies day at Sunrise Stables is the place to be, and it’s free! For two hours, kids are invited to feed and pet the ponies, who, it will be noted by digital-camera-wielding adults, will be wearing their finest holiday attire; the making of homemade treats rounds out the trip. Whether this excursion will soften or worsen the child’s repeated demands for a pony is your call, but it highlights a good cause: most of the horses at Sunrise Stables are rescued from abuse and neglect to be given proper care. Come see “Pebbles” and “Wall-E” up close and personal on Thursday, Dec. 24, at Sunrise Stables, 1098 Lodi Lane, St. Helena. Noon–2pm. Free. 707.337.5582.Gabe Meline
