Circus World in Baraboo, Wisconsin was an unexpected delight on our 30th wedding anniversary trip to (our honeymoon destination) the Wisconsin Dells. The restored Circus Wagons are the most spectacular rainbow of colors and wonderment! The museum is on the campus of the former summer home for Ringling Brothers Circus and is an absolute feast for the eyes!
Each circus wagon was restored to its original splendor and down to the wheels were an unbelievable explosion of colors!
After reading your comments about the Circus tags I had to include a few pix, because you really do have to see it to believe it!
I want to tell you about a book called The Great Circus Fire. It's a sad account of a catastrophe that occurred in a Big Top tent in the 1940's. You can find it here:
I hope that you will think fondly of your circus days and consider a little circus craft of your own or better still, plan a road trip to Wisconsin to see the beautiful circus sites for yourself!
