(Hickory Corners, Mich. / February 9, 2021) - The all new Princesses & Carriages special event at the Gilmore Car Museum promises to combine a magical interaction for kids with storybook princesses, plus an introduction to the museum’s remarkable indoor collection of more than 400 classic vehicles. Princesses & Carriages activities will run from 11:30am – 2:30pm ET on Saturday, March 6th, 2021. Tickets are on sale now.

Princesses & Carriages will provide aspiring young princesses, princes, and their parents or grandparents, the opportunity for memorable photo ops with up to FOURTEEN of their favorite storybook princesses and princes beside carriages, royal coaches, limousines, and fairy tale backdrops. The event will also include opportunities for a red carpet experience, coloring activity, scavenger hunt, courtly tea, and fancy sweet treats.
