Fremont,NE--Who could blame Andrew Stafford for clowning around a bit?
After all, the paint on his face did resemble that of a clown.
Andrew was among the many who took in one of two performances of the James Cristy Cole Circus on Monday at Christensen Field in Fremont.
Those who attended the three-ring circus got to be thrilled by fire breather Alejandro Mesa, “Aerial Diva” Wendy Bell, a bear act and Star Cristy’s Alaskan Malamutes.

The circus also offered an opportunity for kids of all ages to get an up-close look at the animals and take a camel ride.
Other acts included trampoline and aerial artists, jugglers, Uncle Willie the circus clown, a mixed animal revue featuring big and little horses, and Cleo the camel.
James Cristy Cole Circus is produced by James Plunkett, a fourth-generation circus performer. His great-grandfather started out in repertoire shows and vaudeville. The Plunketts eventually added animals to their show and it became a circus.
Plunkett mastered the trampoline and also appeared at the Monte Carlo Circus Festival with his “Christopher James – King of the Silver Strand” wire act. His wife, Cristine Herriott, represents four generations of an American circus family.
