Coeur d'Alene Carousel Grand Opening
Grand Opening for the Playland Pier Carousel will be June 9th, as part of the 1st Annual Family Day in the Park & Fancy Flea Market. The event will host a multitude of events throughout the City Park, Memorial Plaza, Memorial Field and Skateboard Park.
The original Playland Pier Carousel was enjoyed by residents and visitors for over 35 years. It was sold and disappeared for many years, until the Perron's from Hood River, Oregon purchased it at auction. It was fully restored and traveled about the U.S. on loan. It was purchased in 2011 by John & Pat Foote who gifted it to the newly formed Coeur d'Alene Carousel Foundation. The carousel and all of the original horses are in storage waiting for their new home to be completed.
