Join us to mark the opening of Glen Echo Park’s Dentzel carousel for its 100th Anniversary season! We will stream live from the carousel with government officials and other dignitaries to celebrate a local icon that has been a treasured part of the Park and the community for a century. Learn about the history of the carousel and its importance to the community for a century. The event includes a ceremonial first ride with officals and sponsors. Local supporters of the Park attending include Congressman Jamie Raskin, County Executive Marc Elrich, philanthropist Carol Trawick.
