Memorial Day Ceremony

May 28, 2018

The first official ride at the Carousel of Happiness, 8 years ago, was a silent ride in memory of two U.S. Marines and a Vietnam War experience that would inspire Scott Harrison, U.S.M.C. ('66–'72) to create a menagerie of whimsical animals and restore a carousel for others to enjoy. Every Memorial Day the community of Nederland gathers, with Mr. Harrison, at the Carousel to remember those who died serving in the armed forces around the world, in a place of peace and joy.

Everyone is invited! Kids games all day.
