[ARCHIVED] Thousands Expected at Family Fun Day this Saturday at Carousel Park

County Executive Tom Gordon is proud to announce that the summer festival known as Family Fun Day at Carousel Park & Equestrian Center is scheduled for noon to 5 p.m. this Saturday.

Family Fun Day will feature entertainment, music, games, fishing, and food. There will also be face painting and hayrides to the Kids Corral where 10 new baby animals have been born since May, including the donkey Rose’s foal and a pony that still must be named. Fishing in the Enchanted Lake will be limited to those ages 16 and over with a Delaware fishing license.

There will also be visits from the Brandywine Traveling Zoo, the Juggling Hoffmans, Jungle John and his reptiles, and featured demonstrations by the New Castle County Police Mounted Patrol and K9 units.

“Spending a Saturday afternoon at Carousel Park is a perfect way to wind down your summer,” County Executive Gordon said. “As usual, Carousel will look like a Norman Rockwell painting. This could very well draw nearly 7,000 people, similar to our spring festival.”

Family Fun Day will also include food vendors on site selling treats for the whole family.
