39TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CAROUSEL AT LEVER HOUSE TO OPEN DEC. 6
39TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CAROUSEL AT LEVER HOUSE TO OPEN DEC. 6 NEW YORK, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Santa's festival ball, a gala
occasion inspired by festivities around the world that use light, gaiety and glitter to celebrate a faith in the future for a better world, marks the 39th annual Christmas Carousel. The display will open on Friday, Dec. 6, at 10 a.m. at Lever House, the headquarters of Unilever United States, Inc. and its operating companies, Lever Brothers Company and Van den Bergh Foods Company, 53rd Street and Park Avenue.
Richard A. Goldstein, president and CEO of Unilever United States, will switch on the Christmas Carousel at the opening ceremonies which will feature a concert of Christmas carols and songs presented by an employee chorus. The decor is a 20th century adaption of the Baroque, a time of flamboyant and romantic exuberance that reminds us of ages past, while delighting us in the present in a creation of porcelain colors of greens, roses and glittering gold. The revelers of his court are in costumes of appropriate splendor and parade across a marble-patterned floor as they celebrate Santa as King of the Festival. The display has been created once by Jack Lowery of Jack Lowery and Associates, who has designed all 39 Christmas Carousels for Lever House, dating back to 1952. Viewing hours are from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Visitors are permitted in the Lever House Lobby during regular business hours on weekdays and between the hours of 1 and 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The building will be closed on Christmas and New Year's days. NOTE: Because the carousel is strictly decorative, we cannot treat visitors, large or small, to rides. -0- 12/5/91 /CONTACT: Mary A.
