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!
Our annual Derby Day at the Paragon Carousel was a huge hit! Great 'betting' on the sponsored horses, a Derby hat contest, food carts from local restaurants, fabulous race prizes and raffle items...and mint juleps,too!
The event was held on Friday evening, May 4--the night before the Kentucky Derby.
See you next year on Friday, May 3. Start working on those Derby hat designs!
