People of all ages lined up for wagon rides by Jeff Simpson and his Belgian draft horses, Ike and Prince, at the 13th annual Festival of Lights in Morrisville on Saturday.

Jingle bells were the theme at Saturday's Festival of Lights in Morrisville.

The annual holiday event is designed to showcase what Morrisville and its downtown businesses have to offer.

Those particular jingle bells belonged to Ike and Prince, a team of Belgian draft horses giving free wagon rides around the Village.

The wagon rides were a big attraction, as were pictures with Santa, free movies at the Bjiou Theater, and silly balloon hats and other creations by Buddy the Clown.

Just in case anyone had something on their wish list Buddy couldn't produce, Morrisville's downtown businesses were open to fill the bill.

And don't worry if you missed last weekend's festivities. Towns around Vermont are holding similar events throughout December.

This coming weekend you can take part in holiday festivals ranging from "Woodstock's Winter Wassail Weekend" to "A Traditional Christmas in Stowe."
