Baraboo - Monday
Here's the completely rebuilt US Bandwagon. Based on a handful of carvings that John Zweifel had saved from the Sarasota WQ, the wagon was built new from the ground up. Once built, it was valued at more than the Two Hemispheres Bandwagon when the train was insured to go to Milwaukee.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
