Hometown Holiday                         Weekend Getaway

Overnight Package for 2 - Only $150!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! The 16th Annual Hometown Holiday Horse Parade will take place on Saturday, November 23rd at 7 pm in historic downtown Greenville, Ohio. This annual tradition has kicked-off the holiday season in the downtown district for the past decade and a half. Over 90 lighted horse drawn carriages, hitches and riders illuminate downtown and the sound of jingle bells and horse hooves ushers in the holiday season. This grand event was voted "Best Community Parade" in the state by readers of Ohio Magazine for 2019!

This getaway package includes a one-night stay from Friday, November 22nd to Saturday, November 23rd at the newly renovated Baymont Inn and Suites in Greenville, Ohio. Room type will be a single queen standard room, and includes free breakfast, parking, and wi-fi, as well as offering an on-site restaurant. 

In addition to the overnight stay, the package includes 2 tickets to the Horse Parade Dinner Buffet at Romer's Catering in downtown Greenville. The buffet featured unlimited servings of your holiday favorites, hosted in a festive and romantic atmosphere. This is the 7th year for this very popular pre-parade event, and it regularly sells out! Ticket holders are also permitted access to the Romer's parking lot which is less than one block from the parade route. Parking is limited, however, so be sure to arrive early!


Package purchasers also receive VIP seating to watch the parade on the traffic circle which serves as the crest of the parade route. From your seat you can observe the horses and carriages travel up S. Broadway, get an up-close view as they travel past you around the circle, and revel in the holiday magic as they jingle their way back down the street.  Ordinary parade goers cart their own chairs back and forth and have to scope out an opening for seating, but for package holders seats will be provided, reserved, and in an ideal viewing location!

Upon check-in at the hotel you will receive a welcome bag that includes special discount offers for Darke County restaurants, a coupon card for shopping at locally owned businesses in downtown Greenville, as well as a voucher for 2 hot chocolates and a bag of popcorn from one of our pre-parade vendors!

Arrive early on Friday to take advantage of dinner specials in your welcome bag and plan to spend your Saturday relaxing and holiday shopping at our 40+ one-of-a-kind downtown restaurants and shops. Enjoy your buffet dinner anytime from 4:00 - 6:30 pm on Saturday and then grab a hot chocolate and popcorn and settle in to watch the parade with over 90 lighted horse-drawn carriages, hitches, and riders!
