Showmen's Circus


This is the program book for the Circus that Our club in Gibsonton, FL presents every January at our club. It was started back in the eighties and the Chairman of the First Events was Billy Rodgers a retired performer and owner of the Priate's Treasure Chest, a costume supply house and gift shop in Gibsonton. Bill and I use to donate our Novelty Stand proceeds to the show. It was a pleasure and something to look forwartd to every winter! Everyone Performers, Shows,Animal People and Concession People all donated their time and equipment to produce this show. And We donated the proceeds to needy causes in the area. It still happens every January. The first years of the show Mr Bob Earl, owner of Roberts Bros. Circus Donated the use of his Big Top and seating.
