25 years ago this week (1989)
It was a celebration of color, history and life. More than 500 people gathered Monday to celebrate the grand opening of Circus World Museum’s new Irvin Feld Exhibit Hall and Visitor Center. The dedication featured all the festivities of the circus, with jolly clowns, lively music, cotton candy and lots of colorful balloons waving in the breeze. It was a celebration symbolizing a brighter future for circus enthusiasts and the Circus World Museum. The Irvin Feld Exhibit Hall and Visitor Center, honoring the late impresario of Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus, is a $1.6 million exhibit facility which will allow the Baraboo museum to be open year round to the public for the first time. Irvin Feld, an innovative showman and creative producer, revitalized The Greatest Show on Earth after it ceased touring under canvas in 1956
