SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Volunteers spent Wednesday afternoon putting some TLC into the Balboa Park Carousel.

Built over 100 years ago, the carousel has broken down only three times. That's in part due to support from the community and the dedication of Carousel Manager Bill Brown. He started working at the carousel at age 16 and never left.

If you'd like to support the carousel, Friends of Balboa Park is seeking donations for a $3 million capital campaign.

They hope to fund improvements to the carousel and its building, as well as complete payment of the historic relic.
