The carousel at the popular Balboa Fun Zone in Newport Beach is a local legend, but its days may be numbered.

The merry-go-round has been put on the auction block with an asking price of $150,000.

There have been no offers yet.

The Fun Zone first opened 75 years ago in 1936. This is the second carousel on that same spot.

Earlier this year, the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum told the Fun Zone that it would not renew its lease, and the attraction is expected to vacate.
