Controversial Panel Removed from Carousel

The Dentzel Carousel at Ontario Beach Park in Charlotte, opened for the 2016 season Friday, May 27, sans possible racist imagery a group of community advocates demanded the county remove in March.

Rochester’s Preservation Board ultimately granted the city permission to remove the image from the 100-year-old carousel earlier this year, which has since been replaced with a replica of one of the ride’s original panels, that was created by the Rochester Museum and Science Center.

The city is reportedly still deciding how, and where, to house the controversial image, so that it may be properly displayed in its historical context, according to officials.

The county will offer free carousel rides Friday, from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., to mark the first day of its opening season.
