In all seriousness, there are few things as iconic as the merry-go-round at the Danbury Fair Mall. Everyone has taken a ride on that classic at least once in his or her life, and usually several—per visit.

In all seriousness, there are few things as iconic as the merry-go-round at the Danbury Fair Mall. Everyone has taken a ride on that classic at least once in his or her life, and usually several—per visit. From horses that glide up and down to carriages you could sit with the whole family, who didn’t enjoy getting their picture taken by some stationary adult who stood outside the cast iron fence? I certainly enjoyed it. Rumor has it that the merry-go-round is a remnant of the actual Danbury Fair, which explains why the music sounds like it hasn’t changed since the War. As the generations come and go, the Danbury Fair retains its main, if not periphery, draw. So grab an ice cream cone and get in line, you take the pony with someone’s initials scratched into its ear and I’ll take the pictures.
