You’ll want to take the reins and enjoy an imaginary ride on this magical carousel, resplendent with flowery horses galloping in free-style perfection.  Designed and executed by festival veteran architect L. Craig Roberts, AIA, this unique and original merry-go-round features six elaborately adorned equines prancing in their Festival Finery. The turning base, motorized by Will Bridges of Willowbridge, Inc., Henry Bridges and Dr. Mike Huddle, is sure to delight equestrians of all ages! “High Hooves” to Craig and his talented carousel committee for such an inspiring creation!
