The first Belleville Lake Carousel, built behind Johnny’s on Sunday, Jan 7, was organized by Tim Craiger and Jeffrey Riggs, with the help of many other people. The one-foot-thick ice was cut in a circle allowing the 50-foot diameter inner section to rotate with a small electric outboard motor. The carousel featured a bonfire in the middle, Christmas trees on the outer edge for décor, tiki torches, and music. As many as 30 people at a time were riding, with many more watching from shore and Johnny’s. More pictures and videos on Facebook #BellevilleLake.
