The Holyoke Merry-Go-Round, Read Aloud
October 16 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
The Holyoke Merry Go Round is very excited to announce a special event on October 16th from 12-2p. We are partnering with the Junior League of Greater Springfield to host our first read aloud event. Members of the JLGS will be reading different stories and giving out one book to each child to take home with them! We hope you will join us for this all ages event.
We are also so excited to be participating in Doors Open Holyoke, which will take place on Saturday, October 16th, 2021, will let visitors experience historical, cultural, and architectural treasures and look behind doors that are not normally open to the public for free. The Merry Go Round will be participating from 2-4pm.
Take a spin on the Holyoke Merry-Go-Round, situated in the southwest portion of Holyoke Heritage State Park, also home to the Children’s Museum of Holyoke and Volleyball Hall of Fame.
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.
