The holiday spirit and festivities are lighting up the SouthCoast more than ever and a local farm is giving back in a generously festive way.

Over at Anawan Farm (74 Anawan Street) in Rehoboth, the Friends of Regional SEPAC of Southcoast Massachusetts is getting ready for a family-fun event like no other. It's called the 'Candy Cane Hunt Hayride' and it sounds magical. Join them on Saturday, December 2nd, from 11:00 AM - 03:00 PM as SEMAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council) is raising funds to help grow their program.

Tickets are $10 per person (kids under 2 are free), and hot cocoa, treats, and raffles will be available for purchase. It's important to know that you must reserve a time before arrival and spaces are limited. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Friends of Regional SEPAC of Southcoast Massachusetts, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to supporting the Regional SEPAC of Southcoast Massachusetts.

"We had a great turnout last year," Tracy Bartram Lancellotta commented via Facebook, "The wagon ride lasts about 20 minutes, and passengers get different flavored candy canes at stops along the way. The farm is decorated for the season, and the beautiful store is packed with local goods and treats. Raffle baskets will also be available."

A rain date has been put in place for Sunday, December 3rd in the event of inclement weather. Lastly, it's unfortunate, but the hayride is not accessible to wheelchairs or motorized wheelchairs.

The Friends of SEMAC are asking all ticket holders to please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled ride. The final ride of the day will be at 2:30 PM, so come support a great local program that helps inform, educate, and empower families with the information they need to ensure better outcomes for their children.
