Did you know that Thursday, July 25, is National Carousel Day? Aren't we lucky to have two awesome carousels to choose from here in Prince George's County, MD?!
National Harbor opened their new carousel and children's play area earlier this summer. We had a chance to visit on opening weekend and really loved it! It's so fun to ride the carousel and look out over the water.
Starting at 10am on Thursday, National Carousel Day, National Harbor will have stilt walkers, face painting, balloon artists, unicyclists all along the water from the carousel to the Plaza. Plus, one of our favorite children's bands, Milkshake, will be performing!
Carousel passes are usually $3 per ride or $5 all day, but on Thursday, you can ride all day for $3 with a purchase from a National Harbor retailer. (I hear Ben & Jerry's, CakeLove or the Peeps Store calling your name!!).
Our other favorite carousel in Prince George's County is the Chesapeake Carousel at Watkin's Park. It's $1.50 per person per ride.
Happy National Carousel Day in Prince George's County!
