The real question today is: How many light bulbs does Tom need to change to convert our Star Spangled Carousel to all LED lights?

Fans of our carousel may notice more than just the new lights this season; in honor of our State’s bicentennial this year, one of the horses received a new paint job and a new flag:

And as we check out the other side of our Hoosier Horse, we see another nod to 200 years ago:

… for it was also in 1816 that the Lincoln family moved to Indiana (just four miles from where our park exists today). Abraham grew up here, from the ages of seven to 21.

Back to modern day and modern lighting, let’s have a sweepstakes!

    Q: How many people does it take to change 3,017 bulbs on the Star Spangled Carousel?

    A: One: Tom!! (Thank you, Tom!)

  2. Michael Bruzina

    With absolutely no hope of being correct or winning, I’ll guess there is a thousand light bulbs on the carousel.
