Countdown is on to opening of the Port Dalhousie carousel

The Victoria long weekend is approaching and if you are looking for something to do you can celebrate the opening weekend of the Lakeside Park Carousel.

Following a delayed opening last year due to flooding in the Port Dalhousie park, the popular tourist attraction will open on schedule this year.

You can ride the carousel for free Saturday May 19th to mark another season and it will also be open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Victoria Day Monday.

The carousel will be open on weekends from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m and it will open daily between June 9 and Aug. 31.

It still only costs a nickel to ride to carousel which relocated to St.Catharines from Scarborough in 1921.
