Starting on the weekend of Nov. 16 and continuing on the weekend of Nov. 23, Hidden Pasture Farm in Fountain Inn will host the Yuletide Unicorn Farm Festival. Kate Nichols, founder of the farm, wants to celebrate unicorns with the community.

“Everybody loves unicorns,” Nichols said. “I’ve loved them my whole life and they bring a lot of joy to people.”

The festival will be open Nov. 16–17 and Nov. 23–24. Santa will be there for pictures from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturdays and noon – 4 p.m. Sundays.

There will be unicorns to pet, along with stories on how they came to live at Hidden Pasture Farm. Be sure to visit the miniature foals and ponies, donkeys and goats.

Nichols used to be on the board at Roper Mountain Science Center, and was able to obtain Santa’s sleigh when the center used to host holiday lights. The sleigh will be used for children to play on and for pictures.

There will be funnel cakes, roasted marshmallows and a bounce house. Space is limited and tickets must be purchased beforehand.

Visits are for one hour. To have pictures taken with Santa, tickets must be purchased for the times Santa will be on site. A ticket for admission for one car containing up to four people is $15 with additional people in the car charged $5 each.

Children under age 3 are admitted for free. Concessions and pictures are additional costs payable direct to vendors while onsite.
