KENNEWICK, WA - Some people had been waiting for Friday for over a decade. The Carousel of Dreams is finally open.

For many people who heard the one of a kind carousel would be coming to our area years ago, this day couldn't come any sooner.

It was even more of a special a day for Geneva Nevius. The Kennewick woman has lived in the city for 67 years and she celebrated her 95th birthday Friday on the first ride of the carousel open to the public. She says she's been waiting for a chance to get back on a horse. She used to go riding and today was a fun way for her to get back in the saddle.

"This is wonderful. This is a wonderful day. I've been waiting a year for this. When I found out it was going to open on my birthday I had to be here," said Nevius.

She went on to tell us she can't wait to bring her grangrand kids a visit.

Just like the classic carousels of the past, there's a fish built into the ride with a bunch of rings. As you spin around you can try to grab one. If you grab the golden ring you get a free ride.

The carousel will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
