What is there to do?

It's time for that classic family fun with Cafesjian's Carousel! We love a good classic family experience here at Family Days Out!

Cafesjian's Carousel was built in 1914 by Philadelphia Toboggan Company, and is pretty iconic!

Here are some fun facts! There are four rows of horses called jumpers because they go up and down as the carousel turns - who knew, but makes sense!  There are also 68 horses and 2 chariots, all hand-carved, so just imagine the work that goes into it!

All of the horses have those fancy trappings such as saddle blankets, flowers and western motifs on each horse, and 8 scenic paintings around the upper part of the carousel, created by volunteer artists to represent the style and subject matter of the original paintings, which were actually damaged by fire in 1939. 

Don't miss the fully restored Wurlitzer 153 band organ either (it replaces the original band organ which was also destroyed by fire in 1939)

So much history as well as family fun in Saint Paul! You might just have to ride it 68 times though, so you get to try every horse. Make sense!
