Carousel Country Spring Festival set for Saturday Afternoon

County Executive Tom Gordon is pleased to invite New Castle County residents and visitors alike to attend the free Carousel Park Country Spring Festival this Saturday, April 12, from noon to 4 p.m.

“Spring is the time for renewal and we are excited to show off all the new life at Carousel Park & Equestrian Center,” County Executive Gordon said. “Families can tour the barn and see Carousel’s new baby ducks, goats, sheep as well as the turtles, bunnies, and other animals.”

The big news is that Carousel’s new donkey, Rose, is expecting.

The barn tour is part of the new Carousel Kids Corral, which teaches children about different farm animals, said Regina Marini, a Community Services Administrator in the NCC Department of Community Services. Moreover, visitors to Carousel will be able to take hayrides around this picturesque park and get a photo with the Easter Bunny.

“In the courtyard shortly after noon, the County Executive will announce the arrival of Peter Cottontail coming down the Bunny Trail on a horse drawn carriage led by Elizabeth, a beautiful Clydesdale,” Marini said. “We expect to see a large crowd, perhaps comparable to the 1,400 people who attended the Visit Santa event.”

WHAT Country Spring Festival (hayrides, barn tours, photos with Peter Cottontail, etc.)
WHEN Noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 12
WHERE Carousel Park & Equestrian Center • 3700 limestone rd., Wilmington, DE 19808
