Carnival auction emotional for owner

Posted: Updated:

It's hard for Jeanne McDonagh to talk about.

"It's extremely emotional," McDonagh said.

Everything she and her husband worked for is going up on the auction block.

"Many years of memories. Very hard," McDonagh said.

The McDonaghs decided to scale back on their operations.

They donated their land to the Saginaw County Fairgrounds.

And now all of their treasures like a merry-go-round horse and even their signs are for sale.

It's more than half a century of memories for the McDonagh clan.

"I think we've been a part of Saginaw for many years. A good friend of ours, Donna Felton, was just here. She said I'm sure everyone wants a part of McDonagh's amusements, we've been here a long time," McDonagh said.

And there is just so much stuff here that has to go, the auction will be on both Saturday and Sunday starting at 10 a.m.
