Silver Beach Carousel (circa 2010) whirls amidst 1,000 twinkling lights. Around the top of the carousel are 18 rounding boards that tell the area’s rich history in photographs. This carousel is believed to be the only one in the world to use photographs instead of paintings on its rounding boards. Open year round, the carousel is located in the Silver Beach Center near the shores of Lake Michigan at 333 Broad Street, St. Joseph, Mich. It is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that depends on individual and corporate support and volunteers for operation. Also housed in the Silver Beach Center are the Silver Beach Amusement Park Museum, Michigan’s tallest kaleidoscope, Curious Kids’ Museum Discovery Zone, Shadowland on Silver Beach Ballroom and meeting rooms. The Whirlpool Compass Fountain, across the street, provides interactive water fun for all ages during the warm months.
