American "Sideshow" Circus Themed Event Ideas and Party Hire

"The noblest art is that of making others happy" – P.T. Barnum, famous side-show businessman

The American circus of the 19th and 20th Century included a menagerie of "sideshow" acts, sometimes known as "freak show" characters.

Barnum as the Ringmaster.
