There are 966 lightbulbs on the Carousel, and we are working hard to get them changed over to energy efficient bulbs! Our challenge is that LED lightbulbs often change the look of the ponies. We need a special lightbulb that costs $5 a bulb to correctly light our beautiful ponies.
Once we have the new bulbs, we will save about $2000 a year on energy costs.
So far, a grant from NorthWestern Energy and community donations have covered two-thirds of the cost, so we are entering our final phase to raise the rest of the funds. Anyone who donates will be entered to win your choice of a free private rental or Double Deluxe Birthday Party.
