Right after WW2 a circus was setting up in a field behind my gramp's house. During WW2 gramps had a team of draft horses and he hired out to a local woodworking plant. When the circus hit town he would go over and help out with their horses and livestock and the unloading and setting up tents and rides. We kids watched from the garden fence.
Once gramps came over riding a horse all saddled up in a nice outfit. The circus owner let gramps bring it over and give us kids rides. I was about 5 then. We all had our pictures took on that horse. Then they gave gramps free passes to the shows for us. I think I liked the high wire acts best. Pretty scary to a kid.

Oh my god I cant beleive you saw the three stooges

I went to the circus once with my sunday school. It was ok. It wasnt a particularly stunning circus. I suppose it was about 1979.

They always used to show the circus on TV at christmas or easter.

the last time I went to a circus . was.. uhm..
in 1998

it was a really low budget cheapo more on the carny side type.

it was really bad.

before that I went to Ringling brothers circus i think.. around 1988.
that was an amazing experience.

up until some hobo looking clown tried being funny by lifting me up from behind without me knowing,.

I had a fear / hatred for clown for a long time after that. I no longer fear them but they annoy the f*** out of me. I just want to punch clowns and make them bleed.

! i always wonder why my mom always took me to see the ringmaster after the show every year! and ofter me to the ringmaster for $20.00, she told him to feed me twinkies, i would be happy ! the ringmaster told my mom that didn't need a new act ! you think my mom was trying to tell me something !


Maybe the ringmaster was your father?????????

Last time I went to the circus I was a child. Never liked the circus, always found it boring and the clowns unfunny!
Don't like animals in a circus even now - they should be free.

Sorry about that, don't suppose I'll find any spare tickets coming my way then?!
