On the Go with Joe at the Albany Carousel

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, OR (KPTV) -

An attraction that is the result of a major labor of love is about to celebrate its first anniversary: the Albany Carousel.

Come August, the carousel will turn 1 year old but it took 15 years to make the ride of animals a reality.

A true community-built project, the Albany Carousel features carved and painted creatures made by dedicated volunteers.

Each animal requires thousands of hours to come to life. While there are still about 20 in the works, the animals already on the carousel have been a delight to locals and visitors to Albany.

When complete, the carousel will have 52 creatures for riders to choose from.
