Organ music, painted wooden animals, the world spinning dizzily around—a wondrous carousel ride is among the fondest of childhood memories. Become a kid again—and take your own, too—at the 100th birthday celebration of Tilden Regional Park’s antique merry-go-round. Explore its history (including the 1978 restoration and being named to the National Register of Historic Places) in a photo exhibition, then enjoy birthday cake, hula hooping, face-painting, and, of course, rides.
