101st: The Next 100 Years!
The historic Bushnell Park Carousel turned 100 years old in 2014. In celebration of that milestone we were striving to complete the full restoration of the Carousel before the the 100th birthday celebration. The platform has been stripped down and refinished, the carousel structure has been restored, painted, and gold-leafed with 23k gold, and most of the horses have been restored. We are now raising the funds to complete the restoration of the remaining 6 horses.
If you adopt a horse at the inside row, middle row, or outside row level you may name your horse and have a commemorative plaque added to the Carousel announcing your generous donation. Plaques will be installed as the completed horses are reinstalled on the ride.
Contributions of any amount are welcome. All donors will be listed on a main plaque inside the building. We invite school children, corporations, businesses, individuals, and foundations to support this worthwhile project.
