BILL PRICKETT VISITS--
GEORGE CARDEN INTERNATIONAL CIRCUS
PEORIA, IL
Monday, April 9, 2012



George Carden Circus Int'l showed in Peoria, Il, on Monday 4-09-12. There was almost a full house at the 4:30 show and it
 appeared that the 7:30 show would also have a good crowd. Met George Carden, son Larry, and Billy Morris, elephant man.
 The equipment was all clean and looked great. The show traveled from the Chicago area and were headed to "next town",
 Danville, Ill.  Audrey Alvarado is the Ringmistress and does a great job. Running order:  Daniel Raffo, 10 Royal Bengal Tigers.....
 Aerial presentation.....Kiki the clown....Hula Hoops in all three rings....Denise, female cont......"The Georgettes", five aerial silks......
 Dominquex family with dogs......intermission......Hair Hang presentation in all three rings....Jugglers......Gabby, clown and audience
  volunteer.....Three elephants presented by Larry Carden in ring three, and three elephants presented by Billy Morris in ring one...
  The audience loved the performance. The weather had been ideal, but Monday afternoon it started to turn cold and the wind
 arrived. As they were showing in an open ended type pole sturcture, it was not really comfortable to sit and watch the show.
  Ashley Frisco and daughter, Aaliyah, visited the 4:30 show. Ashey had worked on the Carden organization for twelve years.
