Corporate Sponsors

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!


Reserve your Birthday Party soon!

Reservations for birthday parties at the Paragon Carousel are beginning to roll in! The last weekend in April and well into May and June are popular times. This year you can also request to have a special character visit your child's party.

Happy Halloween! The Paragon Carousel celebrated Halloween with our annual, season-ending Spooktacular Halloween Costume Party and Contest on Sunday, October 27. It was a wonderful end to a spectacular 85th season! Thank you so much for supporting the historic Paragon Carousel! Please watch a slide show of some of the happy little faces that visited us on this wonderful day!



Happy 85th Birthday to the Paragon Carousel!

Are you 85? Take a free spin on the carousel and enjoy an ice cream this week! If you share a birthday with the Paragon Carousel (born in 1928) please help us celebrate with a ride on the carousel and an ice cream cone from our creamery. Stop by this week!


Celebrating 85 Years!

The Paragon Carousel is 85 years old! To celebrate this milestone we are inviting all who are also 85 this year to ride the carousel and enjoy an ice cream during the last week in August! So if you and the carousel share the same birth year -- 1928 -- come on down and celebrate with us August 25-31!
