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!

THREE RING DISPLAYS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE




Since this is "The Year of The Dog" in China, the Dog Act display in Evansville will have a Chinese theme.

Here is our display of Chinese Acts with, The Canton Brothers,Hing & Fat, & Hing's wife Lomay;(here pictured with Cole Bros. Circus in Yankee Stadium, 1950); The Asia Boys,(with Ringling Bros. Circus, Madison Square Garden, 1948. And in the Center Ring, an act that was a legend when they were still working,The Yong Brothers & Sister.

In Europe when performers who remember, talk about Great Acts, The Yong Brothers are always mentioned.

In the second half of his show, when the audience might be getting a little tired, Al Dobritch would put in a fast paced, exciting act to wake them up. My choice for that spot at the Showfolks Circus is The Wazzan Troupe!!!!
