Binghamton's Rec Park is getting festive with special carousel rides this holiday season.

For the first time ever, the merry-go-round will be open outside of the traditional summer season. For the next three Saturdays, revelers can take free rides from 3 to 6 p.m. The carousel is festooned with Christmas decorations, there will be holiday music and Santa Claus will be in attendance. Park officials had worried that the cold weather might pose a strain on the ride's mechanical system.

"Actually, this Summer we've had a great push on the carousel and the mechanics of the carousel. And we feel confident that it's going to pull through just like a good strong horse. So, we're ready," said director Carol Quinlivan.

Quinlivan hopes it becomes an annual tradition. Again, the hours are 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday December 7th, 14th and 21st. Johnson City's carousel as CFJ Park also opens on Saturdays in December from 5 to 8 p.m.
