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!

« 6th Annual Flag Day Observance | Main | Derby Day, Friday, May 1, 2015 »

Join our Field of Flags!

We will be installing 200 American flags on the Paragon Carousel lawn this weekend and we're hoping to have each flag represent a veteran, member of the armed forces or a loved one. For a donation of $20 a flag may be purchased and fly in honor or in memory of a special person. The flag will carry a marker with the person's name and all names will be read aloud during our Flag Day Observance Ceremony on Sunday, June 21 at 1:00 PM. Flags may be purchased at the Paragon Carousel this weekend or online at our web site:
