Congratulations to our New Mayor!


Thank you to everyone who cast their vote for Mayor of the Carousel of Happiness. Frog jumped into an early lead, while Panda and Giraffe remained somewhat behind. At the closing of polls, however, Giraffe had a huge show of support, enough to win by less than 10 votes!

Good luck to Giraffe on a great two-year term ahead!

“You can always park your caboose on Moose!”

He’s suave, he’s confident, his knowing eyes just know. And, just in case you didn’t know, Moose has not one, but TWO Twitter accounts – right on his antlers! Yes, those little birds send out tweets all the time. How about that?

As Mayor, Moose has worked his hardest to keep the Carousel spinning. He doesn’t spin the news. He doesn’t spin the truth. He stands his ground with his two little Twitter feeders, and goes around and around!
