Carousel Day, also known as Merry-Go-Round Day, is July 25th
Carousels are among the most classic amusement park rides. They have been around in some form since the early 18th century. The original carousel was based off of a game played by knights who would toss a ball back and forth as the galloped around in a circle. A version of this game began to be played at carnivals, with people riding on real horses. The mechanical version developed as time went on. Carousel Day is a holiday that celebrates this ride and its rich history. You can celebrate it by finding a carousel near you to ride on. Whether it is at your local mall or a nearby carnival carousels are usually not too far out of reach. They are an excellent source of entertainment for people of all ages.
