January 29 - October 30, 2005
Children today can hardly comprehend the excitement generated when the circus comes to town. It was a glittering festival, a rite of passage! If your dream is to run away with the circus ... you still can!
Slip "Under the Big Top" for a trip into another world. "Jump on the bandwagon" in parades filled with swirling color, fancy plumed horses, golden wagons, painted clowns, roaring lions and glittering aerialists. Follow the whistling steam calliopes back to The Midway for rides, popcorn and peanuts. Peek under the sideshow tents before joining the crowd moving toward the show of shows in the cinter ring!
Step right up! Come on in to see The Greatest Show on Earth! Click on the catagories below:
