Since the dream began, Salem's Riverfront Carousel continues to touch the hearts, spark the imaginations and ignite the creative spirits of hundreds of VOLUNTEERS in the Salem area. Donations of time and talent from those who want to have part in the region’s Jewel of the Willamette Valley and our living history constantly delight us! We are grateful with the community’s response and support as we venture together keeping the dream alive.
