SHOWBIZ PETTING ZOO & CIRCUS (MIS 1980'S)

This show was owned by Joe Frisco Sr.
It opened in the Late 80's.
Bill and I had the concessions for a short period of time.
We also booked the first 5 or 6 weeks of the tour.These fotos were taken in Walterboro, SC
Most stands were for 2 days.





The show was presented in an arena similar to the old Wild West Shows.
Bleachers under a canopy and the show in the open.

  1. This is Chuck Walters and his elephant, Laura. Chuck now lives near Fremont, Mich. along with his wife and Laura, who happens to be the ONLY elephant, to reside in Micigan, now that the Detroit Zoo, sent theirs elsewhere.
    I belive Laura is 28 or 29 years old now.
