Perkasie Carousel repaired, to operate Saturday
Just in time for its annual holiday run, Perkasie Carousel in Menlo Park has been repaired and will operate from noon to 5 p.m. this Saturday, Dec. 1, prior to Perkasie’s Christmas tree lighting program, which begins at 5:30 p.m. at Seventh and Market streets.
In September, it was announced that the carousel had major mechanical problems and could be closed for the remainder of the season. This will be the first time since then it is open.
Perkasie Historical Society, which operates the carousel, will provide free hot chocolate and sodas, and Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will visit with children. The free rides are the society’s gift back to the community.
