The Holyoke Merry-Go-Round, Free Rides

May 12 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Thanks to @highlandstreetfoundation we will have free rides on Sunday May 12th from 12 P.M-4P.M. The free admission is part of a larger effort to support women in the community. In addition to these Mother’s Day celebratory events, The JoAnn McGrath Women’s Empowerment Initiative, named in honor of one of Highland Street’s founding Trustees who passed away this year, aims to partner with organizations that are creating economic pathways for women and their families.

Inside the pavilion, the carousel is comprised of 48 magnificent horses hand carved by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company: 16 standers on the outside row that are stationary, 14 jumpers in the middle row, 18 standers and jumpers in the inner row and 2 chariots. The Merry-Go-Round features 56 original scenic panels, 864 brightly colored lights and 98 beveled mirrors.
