The winner of the First Rider Contest was Brooklyn

The winner of the First Rider Contest was Brooklyn!

Brooklyn was chosen to be the 2017 First Rider of the Year on Saturday, May 20.  She was selected out of a field of 30 finalists.  Brooklyn chose to ride Spirit for the first ride of the season.  She was then joined by the other finalists for the second ride and then everyone got to ride!  It was a cold and blustery day outside, but the Carousel was warmed by many happy, smiling children of all ages inside!
