Last year, some work was done on the carousel to smooth out it’s spin. We had some experts in antique carousels come for a visit to help us with that work, as well as determine a plan for maintaining our beautiful carousel for the next century. After that visit, we fundraised and planned for extensive maintenance this year.
The carousel board and staff are grateful to the Clinton Family Fund and the Maihaugen Foundation for supporting the costs of our maintenance work!
Maintenance Closure 4/16 through 4/26
On Sunday April 16, the carousel closed down early so our crew could start working! Paul, our maintenance manager is a mountain local, who has spent several years learning from Scott and working with him to ensure the carousel remains safe.
After getting the new parts installed, there were still a few alignment issues to resolve, and we remained closed a bit longer than planned, through Earth Day weekend.
The carousel board and staff are thankful to the whole work crew: Scott H, Paul A, Aaron T, Mark L, Mark P, Emmit H, and a few others that keep us spinning!
After some great successes, we are now back together
OPEN AND SPINNING on our regular schedule
