Another Dykes Bros Promotion

This was the first circus to appear in the Wicomico Youth & Civiv Center in Salisbury, MD (Our Hometown) back in 1972, I beleive. We had an all-star cast including The Medro Family, The Dubsky's, Hal Haviland, Don Bridwells Clown Alley, Acts from Ozzie Schleentz's Royal Ranch Wild West Circus, Marsha Hunt, organ and Harry Hunt of course was our advisor and Ringmaster and what a Coloring Book Pitch he did! We played this Date for two days then went down the road to Onancock, VA Armory for 1 day. We had a third date but that fizzled out on us.
Plus our ex-partner from The Dykes & Whaton Circus, Dave Wharton handled the concessions for us. In the future I will post some pics from that date.
