WARD holding trophy
presented to him when he was installed as president of I.I.S.A............February,
A correction please.
Just so the history is correct. I was not a sideshow manager at
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus World Park in
Florida. C M Christ and I owned the sideshow that we provided
there under contract.
Our show was there
in late 1975 when the first expansion was opened. Our contract
was for a year. It was extended into the second year, after
which they did the show in house and at that time John Strong
was hired as sword swallower and sideshow performance director
(manager). When we were contracted to provide the independent
sideshow, a major Toy Co starting their involvement, which ended
up a disaster due to their meddling.
If the plans and
ideas for the park that were Irvin Felds concept had been
carried out, I think it not only would still be in business
today but would be bigger and better than other well known
parks.. Milt Robbins was the manager of the Hall and Christ
sideshow at the park in 1975
