Here in Oshkossh the summer is warm and humid and almost impossibly green. Some circuses are framed to play the occasional fair or carnival, for shows like ours accustomed to moving almost every day the novelty of the carnival midway wears off on the third day. At our best we are the main attraction in every town that we play. On the back end of a carnival midway we are seemingly too big for the short attention spans of a crowd focused on five minute thrill rides and sugar dusted Belgian waffles.
