Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

GIL GRAY SPEC 1960 HAPPY HOLIDAYS #1


The spec on the Gil Gray Circus in 1960 was "Happy Holidays" with each float representing a different Holiday, which the show carried on two semi trailers, Karli Peterson's Stock Dept. was responsible for loading & unloading the floats, as well as getting them ready for spec. This first photo is Gene Randow & bicyclist Richard Sidney sitting on the St Patrick's Float, discussing what's wrong with the circus business. I guess we really didn't know how good it was!!!!
