May 19, 1910 was the day that opened the season for Euclid Beach Park, and that day also marked the first time attendees would ride the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel. Installed by Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC), the carousel had four rows of horses, three inside rows of “jumpers” and an outside row of nearly life size stationary horses. It cost a whopping $7,734.04.

To mark the anniversary, the Cleveland History Center will host a Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel Birthday Bash on May 19.

There will be Sugardale Hot Dogs and Weber's Premium Custard and Ice Cream as well as unlimited rides on the Grand Carousel. Tickets cost between $5 and $10.
