Update-July 2, 2010: Opening date pushed back to July 16 (was originally set for July 14):
The City of Kent is bringing back the Morford Family Carousel the summer. Your favorite Kent amusement ride returns on July 16 at Town Square Plaza, on the corner of 2nd Avenue and Harrison Street in downtown Kent. You can ride the 1940s classic Venetian-style carousel carousel through August 22 for a $2.00 donation.
This summer the carousel’s donations will benefit the Girl Scout Troop 41104, to help send the girls, next summer, to Savannah, GA, the Girl Scouts’ home base. They will also be participating in other fundraising efforts including crafts. So come to Downtown Kent with your family, do some shopping and go for a spin.
Weekly hours (may vary) will be:
Wednesdays, 11 am – 1:30 pm;
Thursdays, 5-8:30 pm;
Fridays, 5-8 pm;
Saturdays, 10:30 am – 3 pm; and
Sundays, 1-5 pm.
