Unforgettable

Added in 1981, The Carousel measures 80’ in diameter and 35’ high and weighs 36 tons!  It is embellished with more than 20,000 lights, and It is billed as the largest carousel in the world.  We were impressed.

  3. This thing is huge – you must have a wide angle lens to capture all of this!

    wow, it’s beautiful. Are those angels or swan-people the ones with white wings?

    • I think they are meant to be angels.
