Come celebrate the Prospect Park Carousel’s 100-year anniversary, black tie style!
This Saturday, The Prospect Park Anniversary Ball will commemorate the carousel’s centennial and the 25-year anniversary of the Prospect Park Alliance on the Carousel Lawn in the park.
The ball will be held under an elegant tent on the Carousel Lawn on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 6:30 p.m. through 12:30 a.m. To know the exact location of the soiree, click here.
The night, which costs $375 for the least expensive single ticket, calls for attendees to wear either “festive attire” or “black tie” for a night of cocktails, dinner, a silent auction, dancing, carousel rides and the Anniversary After Party from 10:30 p.m. through 12:30 a.m.
If you can’t make the ball, just come and join the ball guests after dinner and keep the party going! A DJ will spin tunes while you take a spin on the carousel. After-party revelers can enjoy an open bar, an indulgent dessert spread, carousel rides, dancing and more for just $60. Valet parking is available.
After Party tickets will be available online here until 9 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 10.
