Carousel and Easter Bunny return

In a sure sign that spring is here, the Paragon Carousel will open on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the Easter Bunny will be there for photos from noon to 3 p.m. Next Sunday, the carousel will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a free Easter egg dash for children at 12:30 p.m. The carousel will be open weekends, weather permitting, until late June, when it will return to daily hours. The antique amusement park ride has been operating at Nantasket Beach for 85 years.
