Carouselle

The Herschell-Spillman Carouselle is the centerpiece of DelGrosso's Amusement Park. There are three rows with a dozen horses in each. All 36 horses are in a jumping stance. Larger sized horses line the exterior row, medium sized horses are in the middle row and smaller sized horses are in the interior row. All of the horses are hand-carved and hand painted. They represent a variety of "breeds." There is a variation in the saddle and saddle blanket colors on each animal. The lead horse has a red sash to make it distinct. The horses have real horse hair tails and metal horse shoes. The carouselle has two stationary chariots. 

The carouselle has been housed in the wooden dome shape building for more than 65 years. It is the only ride today that was on site when Fred DelGrosso purchased Bland's Park in 1947.
