John Strong has
four shows up at Perry Georgia. These shows are the main museum
show, the girl to gorilla, a live baby exotic animal photo
opportunity, and the world's largest steer.
The world's largest sideshow and museum is up with the world's
largest sideshow tent (this year) and the world's largest
bannerline. The tent is a new one, the 40x100 red and yellow.
The bannerline is 150 foot long. Miss Katya the Leopardess heads
the live show with her fire eating, blade walking and numerous
dangerous stunts. Also featured in this show s the world's only
live two headed cow, the only six legged "panda" cow and Jimmy
the Midget Pickpocketing Horse and numerous two headed reptiles
and sixty other attractions as well.
We are very pleased with the girl to gorilla show that we
purchased from C. M. Christ and Ward Hall. The banners are quite
spectacular, red and yellow on vinyl painted by Cooper. This
show is a real crowd pleaser and well received in the south. The
tent is black vinyl to cut out light. The illusion is built on
the back of a two ton box truck.
The new picture booth is a sensation hit. It really takes a bite
out of the midway. We have two new blue and white 20x20 tops,
new cages for the baby tiger, baby lion and baby kangaroo. We
also have a baby capybara, two large tortoises and a giant 8'
monitor lizard. The new circus menagerie wagon sets off the
menagerie in a nostalgic way with our baby gorilla featured in
this display. We had to add half inch bullet proof lexan glass
to comply with no contact regulations, which doesn't seem to
slow down photos a bit at $20/photo.
Our giant steer show is the only one left out of two giant steer
shows in Perry. The other competitor's steer died apparently of
a heart attack two days before the fair opened. I offered him
the use of my steer, but he said my steer didn't fit his high
standards of show quality. I said mine is doing a lot better
than his at the moment.
Nick Koloszy is here with his headless woman show and giant
killer rat show. Jack Constantine had shows coming in, but had a
wreck in the middle of the season and called that unit back in.
Hannaford Circus is here. I'm anxious to catch the performance.
More updates and photos in the next few days.
