Riding the Ponies...
The carousel is open weekends in May & September and 7 days a week when school is out, approximately first week of June through end of August. It is also open for special community events such at Halloween and for the Festival of Lights (day after Thanksgiving).
The carousel is a hand carved 1922 Spillman Junior built in North Tonowanda New York. The Merry-Go-Round graced the shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene as part of Playland Pier from 1942 to 1974. The Pier and other rides are long gone, but the carousel is back home! Come enoy the art and history of this wonderful treasure.
