After renovations to the carousel structure and the plaza surrounding it, the Krape Park Carousel opened for its 60th season. On July 4, 1959 it was installed in Krape Park. Now, 60 years later it remains a community icon.
On July 4th from noon-2:00 pm the Freeport Park District will be joined by co-sponsor FHN hosting the Carousel 60th Celebration at Krape Park. In addition to 50 cents carousel rides there will be face painting, bouncy house and balloon creations. The first 100 children riders will receive a fun prize.
