Friends of Balboa Park extends is warmest regards to so many in the community for the overwhelmingly positive response to The San Diego Union-Tribune article that announced Friends is in negotiation for the acquisition of the beloved, iconic Balboa Park Carousel. Though this article was premature in its announcement, we are looking forward to an exciting new chapter in our organization’s history and to sharing many more details about the acquisition and upcoming events, the first of which will kick off on National Carousel Day on July 25. Save the date and stay tuned for more info!
On Tuesday, July 25, from 10:30 AM – 2:00 PM, Friends of Balboa Park will be celebrating National Carousel Day in Balboa Park at the historic 1910 Balboa Park carousel right next to Spanish Village. This family-friendly event will include festival-style foods, sweet treats, various entertainment, children’s activities, and free carousel rides all day! A detailed schedule of events will be added at a later date.
