~~~BACK IN THE DAY~~~


Garland Parnell. a great showman and good friend.
Lived in Gibsonton and was a fixture for years on
the Canadian A Circuit of Fairs and on The Royal American Shows.
Also at The Florida State Fair.
He was more than just an Organ Grinder--his monkeys
did an act on the midway.
In later years Bea Fee was his partner.

  1. Garland was one of the very first residents of Gibtown to welcome Judy and I. He was a wonderful character and a fantastic trainer. He and Bea both would come by or I go to their place to cut up and swap monkey tales . I miss them both..Lee Stevens..
