Traditional Carousel Project One Step Closer to Reality
A project already six years in the making is one step closer to reality. Thanks to a promise from Kingsport city leaders, a traditional carousel will be housed next to a small city park.. In order to keep that promise, the city had to purchase a portion of land from Food City. Officials tell us the city and the grocery chain reached an agreement yesterday. The group Engage Kingsport has been working to complete the 32 hand-carved wooden animals and chariots that will sit in a 70-foot roundhouse next to the Kingsport Farmers Market.
