Hay Ride - Registration Requirements

Due to the popularity of holiday hayrides, traffic during the month of December has become quite problematic in Pecan Grove.   As such we will be asking everyone operating hay rides to follow a few simple rules to reduce congestion and keep the traffic moving as best possible.
