For 3 minutes and 15 seconds seconds the lions, tigers, ostriches, ostriches, fish and, of course, the horses spin around the organ, a ringmaster as old as the 87-year-old 87-year-old 87-year-old 87-year-old 87-year-old carousel itself. itself. The old wooden floor that surrounds it creaks when you walk across. It has turned black under a million footsteps. footsteps. Only a few customers who came to the lady in the booth and bought 20-cent 20-cent 20-cent tickets for rides. If it's too hot, business slackens, said Andy Palumbo, owner of the Carousel in Ontario Ontario Beach Park. It's the oldest carousel in continuous operation in the world, Palumbo said. He and his brother, Dominic, bought it six years ago. He sat on one of the old benches and watched the animals twirl rapidly around the never-ending never-ending never-ending never-ending wooden circle. The carousel was made in Germany "Each one of those horses was hand carved, and the seats, too," he said. The carousel is open from June 1 to just past Labor Day.

Maurren Dottin of Toronto followed her sister's children off the merry-go-round merry-go-round merry-go-round merry-go-round merry-go-round and sat on one of the rough, uneven, uneven, plank benches. "I think I could get on and ride all day," she said. "It's a real nostalgia thing. It's fantastic there are so few of them left." "It was a whole social gath ering place," she said about when she was a teenager. There's only one change she noticed. The rings catch brass ring, get a free ride aren't there any more. The carousel wound up again, like a turntable suddenly suddenly switched back to life. Outside, where old men and young kids sit in the shade of the trees, you can't really hear the carousel's music, and the whirling animals are only an outline.
