Volunteers Needed For Clowns at the Carousel!!
Clowns at the Carousel is an annual event at the Heritage Carousel. Since 2003, thousands of children and adults have attended and enjoyed this family fun event. All activities are free and open to the public thanks to many generous sponsors. This year, the event will be held on Sunday, August 7 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. Many volunteers are needed to make this event successful and fun for everyone!
Please show your support of the Heritage Carousel by giving a few hours of your time to help with this event. Volunteers are needed to hand out the food and drinks and other donated items, to assist with games and activities, and to help set up and clean up!

Many thanks to the Rollin' Relics!!
The Heritage Carousel is so very grateful to The Rollin' Relics Car Club. On December 7, 2015, The Rollin' Relics presented The Heritage Carousel with a donation check in the amount of $7,000 before the Des Moines City Council meeting. Amazing! We are humbled by all of the hard work, love, and dedication that every member of The Rollin Relics Car Club has put into making Cruise to the Carousel such a success. It is a fabulous event enjoyed by all!
The Rollin' Relics are the largest contributor to The Heritage Carousel and have generously donated over $46,000 in the past 15 years to help keep the Carousel going 'round and keep the rides at 50 cents for children.
