There will also be a magic show to entertain the children.

All proceeds from the rides and raffles will go to the Woodhaven Cultural & Historical Society, an organization now in its 26th year that promotes history and the arts in Woodhaven.

“This past year, we’ve really stepped up our efforts to encourage and promote the arts in our community,” said Edward Wendell, Executive Director of the WCHS. “We have sponsored two art projects in local public schools and we have also sponsored a series of free art classes for adults. Thanks to our friends at the Forest Park Carousel, we will be able to sponsor many more programs like this in the upcoming year.”

The WCHS recently premiered the Museum of Woodhaven History, which included a panel on local artists, including Madeline Lovallo and Stephen Csoka. Lovallo will be attending the party and raffling off a copy of her most beloved painting of Lewis’ of Woodhaven.

In addition to the painting, the WCHS will be raffling off a number of prizes specially chosen for children and adults. And throughout the evening, attendees will be treated to a selection of hit music from the 1950s.

The Forest Park Carousel is located on Forest Park Drive just off Woodhaven Boulevard. There is ample parking in the parking lot near the carousel. In the event of rain, a rain date of June 29 has been scheduled. If you have any questions, please email the WCHS at woodhavenhistory@gmail,com or call 718-805-2002.
