BILL PRICKETT VISITS:
    TARZAN ZERBINI CIRCUS SPECTACULAR            
 Peoria, Il, area was indeed fortunate that this fine circus showed here on 10-16 and 10-17.
They came from Chattanoga, Tn, showed two days in Peoria, and left for Terre Haute, Ind. where they opened 10-19 under their beautiful tent. In Peoria, they showed in a pole building at the fairgrounds, and they could not present the full, colorful show that they do in their tent.

 Belliago, Elvis, and Erika Zerbini
The attendance was light due to the fact that another well know show had just appeared at the Civic Center the previous weekend. Then Wed, the rain and cold arrived.
Those in attendance witnessed many innovative new acts and great wardrobe/costumes.Richard Curtis is Performance Director-Ringmaster and did a fantastic job moving the fast paced show along. His daughter, Harley (14) assisted in the dog act. Larry Solheim (the other Larry) is General Manager-Technical Director.  Here is list of performing acts these dates provided by Katia:
 Freestyle Motor Show/ 8 Liberty horses/ 2 elephants/ Double Lyra/ Teeterboard/ Piolita,clown and his young children/, Huyla Hoops/ Aerial Net/ and Comedy Musical Bells.
