Painted ponies go up and down


Catch up on the remarkable story of how Nancy Peterson and Peter Boehm kept the carousel in one piece and in St. Paul at ourcarousel.org, then come and meet them at the carousel’s 100th birthday party Aug. 9 at Como Park. Below, Carousel horses are either “standers” or “jumpers. At Cafesjian’s Carousel in Como Park, all 68 horses are “jumpers” meaning they move up and down. (photos by Linda E. Andersen/Review)

Volunteer crafts people painstakingly scraped off layers of dark paint - and repainted the original colors - on those spots on the horses where children’s boots and buckles had worn through the painted finishes.

Everyone is invited to the 100th birthday party for Cafesjian’s Carousel, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9, at the carousel’s location, right next to the Marjorie McNeeley Conservatory in Como Park. There will be birthday cake and root beer floats, while singers and face painters entertain visitors. A brief ceremony will take place at 3 p.m., and rides will be free from 4 until 6 p.m.

It’s 100 years for Como Park’s Cafesjian’s Carousel
When Nancy Peterson heard the news that cold November day in 1988 that the long-time Minnesota classic carousel had been dismantled and 20 of the horses and a chariot were now on their way to the auction block in New York City, she remembers saying to her husband, “Somebody ought to do something!”
