3rd Birthday Party at Nunley’s Carousel #girlsbirthdayparty

My daughter turned three and we threw her first party with kids from her class.  We chose a venue that worked for twelve three-year-olds plus family of various ages, Nunley’s Carousel at the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City, NY.

The Carousel used to stand at Nunley’s Amusement Park in Baldwin, NY, from 1940 to 1995.  I remember many happy times there with my family.  A visit to the Carousel at its current location is a nostalgic, old-timey experience with authentic organ music and the simple joy of riding round and round on beautifully restored horses.  For a 3-year-old’s party, this simple activity is perfect.

During the two-hour Princess and Prince-themed party, the schedule is flexible; but generally, the children ride, do a craft, ride again, eat pizza, ride again, eat cake, then ride until the party is over.

The venue was closed to the public during the party, so it was just our friends and family celebrating our little girl’s 3rd birthday.  It was a fantastic time.

    1. The party was early, like 10am, so we had bagels and coffee for the adults. They were provided by the people at the carousel. I can’t remember how much of everything we had, but I know that the carousel arranged it based on how many guests we had. I hope your daughter has a wonderful party!
