Walnut Beach getting a carousel

The long-planned Walnut Beach Carousel is to be dedicated on Thursday morning, according to the Walnut Beach Arts and Business Association.

Mayor Ben Blake is expected at the 10 a.m. ceremony and the carousel, or “flying horses,” will mark the return of the amusement park ride after an absence of nearly 50 years.

Smith’s 17-Acre Park had a carousel that is still fondly recalled by “beach kids” of a certain age.
