Out the Gate
The long awaited arrival of the Berkshire Carousel.
Eleven years on, the day has finally arrived. After countless hours of sanding, carving, and painting, the 33-horse, three-chariot Berkshire Carousel plans to open Friday, July 1, 2016 on Center Street in Pittsfield.
Some 400 Berkshire residents volunteered to work on this project—not one was experienced in the field, says executive director Maria Caccaviello, yet “they all came and they stuck with it.”
Now other communities hope to build their own carousels in the future. For hours of operation and special events—it will be open year-round—go to berkshirecarousel.com.
