February 18 @ 12:30 PM - 1:00 PMFree
We will be live on our website, YouTube, and on Facebook to tell you about the exciting activities and events we’ve planned for the months-long Glen Echo Carousel 100th Anniversary celebration. The presentation will cover what we have planned from February through September to celebrate the carousel’s 100th birthday, including virtual lectures on the history and restoration of the carousel, summer family weekend activities, social media contests, carousel anniversary merchandise, a fundraising campaign, and the premieres of three short films that will feature personal stories reflecting the unique and enduring role the carousel has played in the community for a century.
