Did you know that carousels have their own day? Apparently, the holiday - which is celebrated on July 25th in the US - was created in honor of the merry-go-round's official inventor, William Schneider. Schneider patented the first carousel in 1871. There are approximately two hundred original wooden carousels still remaining of the thousands that were conceived during that time.

In honor of carousels past and present, we went round-and-round through our royalty-free images to find some of our best. Each image is available for downloading. Enjoy.
