Having breakfast at the circus. With the lions and the clowns. A classic hit in Canada written by one of the best college/bar performers in Canada, the one and only David Wilcox.
Today we take a look at old time circuses. It is from a time before computers and the amazing graphics that they produce. It is a simpler time with performances that had to be seen with your own eyes. Going to the circus was an outing. Many times, when a circus came to town, there was the circus parade of the elephants and animals and clowns down the main street to promote the fantastic event know to the kids simply as, The Circus. This happened when I was a young kid growing up in Oakville , Ontario Canada. We’d watch them set up behind our Junior B hockey area in the park and marvel at things that we really only read about in books. So when the circus comes to town, please make sure that you go and see the magnificent performances that only a live show can give.
