Holyoke Carousel Horse Festival Idea
Have you seen the bear festival that Easthampton, MA is having again this year? http://easthamptonbearfest.com/
It was a huge success the last time they held one and do wonders for increasing summer economy for their community.
I have an idea. I think Holyoke should have one too. But what animal or object though? What is this city known for? A paper festival is useless. But what else? The Merry-Go-Round! Carousel horses!
I did some research and some similar was done a few years ago at Myrtle Beach. http://www.funbeaches.com/carousel.html
Someone needs to start planning this. Think of the positive tourism it could bring to the city. I even found that there is a company the already sells molded fiberglass horses just like the bears. http://www.cowpainters.com/caro_main.html
So who wants to get started?
