Thanks for a great 2012 record breaking
2013 Opening Day – Saturday, May 25th!
Wow – over 85,000 rides were taken on the Heritage Carousel in 2012!!
With “warm” being the norm for most of the season, we were off to a fun start with the January rides taken on a sunny and balmy Saturday in January. Our diehard fans even showed to celebrate National Carousel Day in July with our record temperature hitting 106 that day! Thanks for your support of the Carousel – we look forward to another fun season of going ‘round in 2013!
