The weather might not be cooperating but late March technically counts as spring. Which means that one of the harbingers of the season is coming on Thursday: the opening of the Prospect Park Carousel, where $2 and a dream can buy you a whirl around the park on the back of a wooden animal. BYO-Cotton Candy, though.
This season, you’ll be able to ride on ye olde carousel between 12 and 5 pm on Thursdays through Sunday, until June 29. It’s $2 a pop or 5 for $9, or free if you’re part of the Prospect Park Alliance. It’s right near the B/Q Prospect Park entrance, in the Children’s Corner. But you know, if you want to ride as an adult that’s cool too. We will be.
