Historic Tilden Park Merry Go Round- Winter Fantasy with twinkling lights, ornaments, refreshments

I haven't yet been to Tilden Park this year to see the the new Winter Fantasy display of lights.  There is a new vendor so it may be a bit different than years past.  I looked on the website and evening hours started on December 1st and continue through December 23rd.  I will write more when I visit.....

The Tilden Park Merry go round was built in New York in 1911 by the Herschell-Spillman Company of North Tonawanda, New York.  It made its way to Berkeley in 1948.  It did duty in San Bernadino County, San Diego, and Griffith Park in LA, before finding its permanent home in Berkeley.  It earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
