MIDDLEBURY, Conn. – Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls of all ages, step right up and see Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! ® Summer Sideshow at Quassy Amusement Park.
 Something old is indeed new again as a piece of Americana is being reinvented for daily performances July 9-22 at Quassy’s Carousel Theatre stage.
 In the works since last winter, the circus-style sideshow will feature Todd Robbins, a renowned performer, actor and author from New York. The multi-talented Robbins will eat fire, swallow swords and marvel guests with other unusual feats during each performance.
 “I hold several world records, but the achievement I’m most proud of is being immortalized in a Ripley’s cartoon for having consumed more than 4,000 light bulbs during the course of my career,” the artist said during a recent dress rehearsal at the lakeside property.
 Magician Jim Sisti of Beacon Falls, Conn., produced the show, which will be presented more than 40 times during its two-week run.
 There is no admission to Quassy Amusement Park and the free shows start daily at 1 p.m., with three performances Sunday through Thursday and four shows Friday and Saturday. There is a $6 parking fee and at the end of each performance guests may make a donation to the Connecticut Food Bank if they so desire. There are fees for rides, food, attractions and the waterpark at the lakeside facility, located at 2132 Middlebury Road.
