The Carousel in Congress Park will celebrate its 103rd birthday today when it opens for the season in Saratoga Springs.
On a day that features the running of the Kentucky Derby and the Stanley Cup playoffs, some of the rules posted outside the carousel seem to be good rules to live by for any event.
Riders must remain on their horses for the entire ride.
Riders must face forward when riding and sit with one leg on each side of the horse.
The maximum weight limit on horses is 250 pounds.
Roughousing and abusive behavopr will not be tolerated.
