Building Our Carousel


Susan McCormick.  Congratulations Susan for winning this year's gorgeous rocking horse!


The Southern Maryland Carousel Group is raffling off this lovely carousel rocking horse.  A  Muller style horse, it measures 37 inches long and 34 inches high and was hand carved from basswood by Burkey Boggs and Melvin Williams.   

Be sure and stop by the Southern Maryland Carousel booth at the Charles County Fair, September 13 - 16, 2018, for details on how you can win this horse. 

The horse will also be on display at this year's Kris Kringle Christmas Market, December 7 - 9, and the winner will be drawn December 15, 2018, at the Carousel Clothing Store in Waldorf, MD. 

Tickets are $5 each or five for $20.
