Celebrate the launch of a new children’s book written and illustrated by local designer and author Andrew Barton. “Heyward the Horse Loves Charleston, Of Course!” is the tale of Heyward M. Pinckney IV, a carriage horse in downtown Charleston.
Heyward takes visitors on a carriage ride past a variety of Charleston area landmarks and attractions, including Riley Waterfront Park, Rainbow Row, historic churches and the Charleston City Market. With his magical bow tie, Heyward is able to fly his carriage over the Holy City, pointing out the marshes, plantations and the beaches.
The event is 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24 at Maxtrix Kids Rooms, 816 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. in Mount Pleasant. Purchase copies of the book and enjoy a balloon artist, children’s activities and more.
