Children enjoy free carousel rides during final weekend in Santa Barbara

Free carousel rides on final weekend in Santa Barbara

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The Chase Palm Park carousel is going around and around for one more weekend.

Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation hosted a carousel carnival on Saturday with free rides.

Those free rides will be offered on Sunday, too.

Then the carousel will be moved to a museum for historic carousels in Hood River, Oregon.

The city allowed Historic Carousels, the carousel's owner, to get out of its 20-year lease a year early to make the move.

 Santa Barbara will still have the carousel building.

Parks & Recreation director Jill Zachary said they have not yet decided what to do with the space.
