    Winter Carousel

    My wedding at the Bear Mountain Carousel exceeded my expectations. The space was absolutely amazing, the food was delicious and the staff were wonderful. Valerie, our coordinator was beyond helpful. She was always quick to respond to any questions I had. She was always happy and positive when we met. We had the most wonderful experience.
