Historic Carousel Opens at Como Park in May

ourfaircarousel.org

ST. PAUL (AP) — A historic carousel that was saved from auction years ago is opening once again this year at Como Park.

The Cafesjian’s Carousel will open its 14th season at Como Park on May 1.

The carousel was at the Minnesota State Fair for 75 years and spent a brief time in downtown St. Paul before it moved to Como Park in 2000. Its 68 horses and two chariots have been restored to their original 1914 appearance. A restored organ also plays waltzes, marches and popular songs.

About 100,000 people ride the carousel each season.

The carousel is owned and operated by a nonprofit community group called Our Fair Carousel.

Anyone interested in volunteering to operate the ride, help riders, or sell tickets and merchandise may call (651) 489-4628 or email volunteer(at)ourfaircarousel.org.
