The 16 rounding boards, located on the upper outside of the Carousel, are usually the first things families see as they approach the Carousel. These boards consist of a round panel, made up of a metal sheet, mounted on a wood frame. On the metal sheet are two carved dragons, and under the dragons are branches. Below the barriers is a nature scene that was historically painted of scenes of Kansas where the Carousel was constructed. The panels are connected to each other by a framed mirror. It was determined that the entirety of the rounding boards had reached their functional end date and a decision was made to construct new ones identical to the original where possible. Students and faculty of Superior Collegiate are painting 16 iconic Thunder Bay and area scenes on the metal panels. Members of the Thunder Bay Carvers have created 32 new dragons, 16 rosettes and 16 branches for the rounding boards. Priming of the carved items was performed by a Job Creation Partnership team based at Chippewa while all of the embellishments were painted by Linda Siczkar a volunteer with the Save Our Carousel Committee and a Board member of the National Carousel Association.
