Starting on June 17th and continuing every Friday after that, Dana will offer an all you can eat cookout and donkey wagon rides out at the Carolina Corral. Everyone is welcomed to attend and chow down on some burger and beans, hot dogs, veggie burgers, chips and sides. The cost is $18 for children and $35 for adults. Dana said she is trying to involve more locals with the corral, as well as give the donkeys something to do. The cookout will start at 4 p.m. Please call or text Dana at (340) 227-9622 if you have any questions or if you would like to attend.
The Carolina Corral opened back in 1993 with just two donkeys. Since then it’s expanded to include more than two dozen animals including, goats, chickens, ducks and dogs. All of the animals have either been rescued or were no longer wanted by their owners, according to Dana. In addition to caring for the animals, Dana also offers horseback riding on trails in Coral Bay. We went horseback riding with Dana back in 2014. Click here to read all about it.
