Thanks to winning a grant from American Express the Paragon Carousel replaced all twelve doors to the building that houses the Paragon Carousel with beautiful wooden doors that replicate the original doors from 1928. The grant also allowed us to renovate all the windows above the doors so that now light streams into the building. Thank you!

Easter Bunny will Visit the Carousel!

To open the 87th season of the historic Paragon Carousel, the Easter Bunny will once again join us for photos and fun on Saturday, April 4, from 12 noon until 3:00 PM.


Have your photo taken with him by a professional photographer. Your photo will be printed and placed inside a decorative Easter-themed photo folder with envelope. A donation of $10 requested for one photo, two photos for $15 and three for $20. We've been celebrating the opening of our season with the Easter Bunny for nearly 20 years! All proceeds directly support the ongoing restoration efforts of the historic merry-go-round. Your donation is also tax-deductible. AND ON SUNDAY please join us for our annual EASTER EGG DASH. The Dash begins at 12:30 sharp! We scatter more than 2,000 candy-filled plastic eggs around the circumference of the carousel lawn. Kids line up on the brick walkway around the building and when the signal for "GO!" is heard, the mad dash begins with the Easter Bunny leading the way! It's become a right-of-spring tradition in Hull and families arrive from all over the south shore and beyond to participate. We will also be offering rides on the antique Carousel both weekend days.
