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!

CIRCUS AMERICA: AERIAL BALLET & SMALL ANIMAL DISPLAY

AERIAL BALLET
Lou Regan used to affectionately refer to the aerial ballet as, "The Milk-Maid's Follies"

The girls in the two pictures above are Lora "Dinky" Patterson, Judy Jacobs Kaye, Chris,(she is now Chris Schreiber), Donna Wilson, & Aileen Kay.

There were 32 web girls in the Aerial Ballet, that featured "Cookie" Arturo doing Heel & Toe Trapeze, unfortunately I have no photos of him. He made his entrance in a black & white plaid "Zoot Suit", on a Chopper Motorcycle.
Rebecca & Dolly Nock
Dinky, & Aileen


SMALL ANIMAL DISPLAY
THE NICCOLINI CHIMPS


WELDE'S BEARS
Johnny Welde Sr.


ANTONUCCI'S CHIMPS
You might wonder about the descriptions under some pictures, but it is because of the way the pics were arranged on the pages. I started out doing a lot more editing, but decided I wanted to get this on before Christmas. I've also added some photos of acts from my files that were not in the program.
