Old School

Delhi, NY 89 miles. Grass. Cool. Overcast.

When our stakedriver busted an oil line today our intrepid tent crew were more than up to the task of pounding stakes old school. Even Aaron Broderick, the ringmaster drove some steel.

We are deep in the heart of the storied Catskill Mountains today. A century ago famed wagon shows like Sig Sautelle’s circus played the towns here. Tomorrow we will pass through Kingston, originally the home of Charles Hunt’s Hunt Bros Circus, a wagon show that moved to trucks and traveled the eastern seaboard for eighty years. In our own 70th season and producing what we believe is the best, most exciting circus we’ve ever taken on the road, we appreciate longevity.
