Iconic Holyoke Merry-Go-Round Celebrates 90th Birthday

🎠 In August, the Holyoke Merry-Go-Round celebrated its 90th birthday. Connecting Point’s Zydalis Bauer brings us the story on WGBY Public Television.

Residents of the Paper City came together to celebrate the beloved Holyoke Merry-Go-Round, an iconic part of the city's history since 1929.

Did you catch us tonight on WGBY Public Television's Connecting Point? 🤩

When Mountain Park closed in 1987, the residents of Holyoke rallied to save the park’s beloved Holyoke Merry Go Round. Now, the community is coming together once again—this time to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the iconic family attraction.

Check out this sneak peek and catch the full story tonight at 7pm on “Connecting Point.” →💻 Watch a livestream at https://wgby.org/cplive

This experience blew me away today! I brought my son here not knowing how I would even get him on the carousel. But this carousel? It comes with a ramp and is TOTALLY ADA accessible! I got teary as we wheeled my guy on. Grateful for this experience and the incredibly kind and helpful staff at the Holyoke Merry Ground. You made our day! Thank you!!!!
It is wonderful that this relic has been preserved and is still working at 90 years old. I only wish the music had been playing. That would have brought back memories. Thank you to the people involved for putting on the event. 90 cent hot dog, can’t beat that.
July 1st 2019 My Mom and Step Father Just Celebrated there 23rd Anniversary And They were Married at The Holyoke Merry Go Around July 1st 1996 They were First Married Jen Laramee Jim Laramee
Our big day, 19 years ago, today. Our thanks to all from The Holyoke Merry Go Round who made it wonderful.
Bring the small ones
Is this Merry Go Round from Mountain Park?
Are these still used for rides? They were given to me and we have never been.
Huge thank you to the Merry Go Round staff for helping a great day happen for Dakota and Jade who came to visit the Holyoke Police Department, Springfield Thunderbirds and the Thin Blue Line Vette. More pics on TBLVette FB Page and She Loves Police.

Do you sometimes find that your "lizard brain" ( the part that believes you are being chased by tigers) spins with stressful stories? Come meet my lizard "Xi" and learn how WORDS of intention calm your lizard. Find me at the Holyoke Holiday Market with my personalized "What's Your Word?" Jewelry. (Ok. Xi is a dragon, but fits the bill!)
