Circus Parade - # 3
With nothing happening for several years since the Parade ended in Milwaukee after the 1973 showing, Chicago got in on the action and had the huge Gala for two years beginning in 1981. This poster was also done on a foil paper that is just gorgeous but doesn't photograph very well due to the foil reflectons.
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.
