Come celebrate the 108th birthday of the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel!

May 19, 1910 was the day that opened the season for Euclid Beach Park. It was also the first time that attendees would set their sights on, and ride, the magnificent Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.

Installed by Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC), this new, larger, more grand carousel had four rows of horses, three inside rows of “jumpers” and an outside row of nearly life size stationary horses. The initial purchase price for this carousel: $7,734.04

 Join us as we celebrate the 108th Birthday of the crown jewel of Euclid Beach Park.
