Photo Album - 16th Annual Rollin' Relics Cruise to the Carousel Car Show - August 28, 2016


The Rollin Relics sponsored the 16th annual Cruise to the Carousel on Sunday, August 28.  It was another great success!  There were 186 cars registered for the Car Show.  Estimates put the crowd at 700 to 800.  Guests were able to look at all the cars, bid on silent auction items, sign up for door prizes, enjoy food and drink and, as always, enjoy a free ride on the Carousel!  The Carousel had nearly 1,000 riders during the event.

The winner of the coveted Carousel Choice Award was Gene Poore.  Gene’s car is a 1940 Ford Sedan.  The winner of the Union Park Neighborhood Association award was a beautiful 1941 Oldsmobile owned by Chuck Clark.  To see more pictures from the show, check out the Rollin Relics facebook page, rollinrelicsdsm.

Cruise to the Carousel is a fun event for the community but it is also very important to the Carousel.  It is the largest fundraiser for the Carousel each year.  This year, members of the Rollin Relics presented the Heritage Carousel with a check for $7,000.00.  Support from donors like the Rollin Relics allows us to maintain and update the Carousel while keeping the cost of a ride to 50 cents for children.  For more information about donating to the Carousel, click here.

Thank you Rollin Relics!!
